A section of Spanish Town Road heading towards the Three Miles Bridges from the direction of downtown, Kingston will be closed today, Wednesday, August 14, for two days to facilitate reconstruction between Bell Road and the intersection.
The road closure was announced by the National Works Agency, NWA, yesterday.
Communication and Customer Services Manager at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, says the existing road surface will be excavated and a new base put down as works to complete the ground level roadway under the bridges continue in earnest.
According to Mr. Shaw, persons will still be able to access establishments along the corridor by way of Bell Road, Little Bell Road, and Marcus Garvey Drive.
He says local business interests have been informed of the planned restriction.
The NWA says, currently, the first lift of asphalt has been applied to some 65% of the road surface throughout the project.
The works agency also says it is targeting the end of August for the completion of this phase of the works and that the Hagley Park Road improvement project is 80% complete.
