Road closed for repairs

Pinecrest Public School in Timmins is closed today due to a watermain break.

While all the school buses in the area are cancelled, other schools are open. 

According to the City of Timmins website, the watermain break will cause a service disruption for Toke Street north of Ross Avenue, and Brousseau Avenue east of Patricia. 

Brousseau Avenue is closed from Patricia to Toke for repairs. The estimated end time is 4 p.m.

"Homeowners in the immediate area may experience some coloured water. Should that happen we recommend running your cold water tap nearest to where your water main enters the building until the water clears," reads the notice on the City's website.
