TIMMINS POLICE ISSUE TRAFFIC ADVISORY – ROAD CLOSURES

Due to rising water levels at various locations throughout the city of Timmins and
surrounding area, the Timmins Police Service is issuing a Traffic Advisory.
In response to changing circumstances, roadways may be closed to all traffic for obvious safety
reasons.
Where necessary, traffic barricades will be deployed to prohibit traffic from proceeding until such
time as the level of risk affiliated with unpredictable water flows has returned to a level of safety
allowing for the resumption of road usage.
The public is asked to heed any and all such road closures.
Any persons found operating a motor vehicle on a closed roadway will, depending on the
circumstance, be issued with an Offence Notice under section 134 (3) of the Highway Traffic
Act which carries, upon conviction, a fine of $110 and 3 demerit points.
The anticipated cooperation of the motoring public is appreciated.
