Timmins is talking about supporting a resolution to four-lane Highway 11 from Cochrane to North Bay.  Temiskaming Shores is asking for support from surrounding communities to turn the highway into four lanes, but Timmins city council isn’t sure.  Mayor Steve Black says it would be a great thing to have, but we are already struggling to get the roads fixed in Timmins.  Councillor Pat Bamford suggesting asking for passing lanes instead, since there aren’t many between New Liskeard and Timmins.  He says that is the start of four-laning, it’s more doable, and it is much safer for the highway.
