Traffic Lights on Highway 101 to be Adjusted to Give People More Time to Cross

Pedestrians crossing at various intersections along Algonquin Boulevard and other points along the Connecting Link will soon find they have about ten more seconds of time to cross the road. The city is adding time to the crossing signals as the result of lobbying by the Timmins Municipal Accessibility Advisory Committee (MAAC). Changes to the traffic light will be made next week by crews from Porcupine Electric.
