With the City of Timmins’ Connecting Link construction underway, residents traveling from the east over the Mattagami Bridge for their vaccine appointment should expect delays.

The first phase of construction has Algonquin reduced to one lane in both directions at Mattagami Blvd. South. As the project proceeds, a full detour down Wilson Avenue will be required.

“We suggest adding an extra 15 to 30 minutes to your travel time,” says Public Works Manager Ken Krcel. “We’ve made every effort to help maintain traffic flow, but there will be delays. If you have a set appointment, it’s a good idea to give yourself more time.”

Vaccine appointments at the Mountjoy Arena are done by appointment only and the time is specific to allow vaccination of as many people as possible, to reduce wait times, and to support public health measures such as physical distancing, cleaning of surfaces and limiting gatherings.

“The vaccine is the critical step forward in fighting this pandemic and protecting the health and safety of all communities. Please arrive on time to prevent delays at the clinic,” says Dr. Lianne Catton, Medical Officer of Health of the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU). “If you are late, the staff at the clinic will work with you to get your vaccine.”

Once the full detour onto Wilson Ave. is in place, also add an additional 15 to 30 minutes travel time if you’re taking Timmins Transit.
