Days before United States President Barack Obama arrive in the island there is a warning that members of the public should expect road closures and significant traffic changes throughout the Corporate Area during the visit.

The Jamaica Information Service (JIS) says full details of the restrictions and traffic changes will be made public in the coming days.

The changes are expected to take effect between Tuesday and Thursday.

However, the government’s information agency says some of the areas that will be affected include the new Kingston business district, Liguanea, Mona, Cross Roads as well as sections of Central Kingston.

JIS says the traffic changes are being implemented to facilitate the movements and activities planned as part of the visit of the US President and other Caribbean leaders.

Obama is scheduled to arrive in Jamaica on Wednesday.
