The police have advised persons travelling in the Corporate Area to brace for major traffic disruption during the visit of United States President Barack Obama.

According to the cops, Jamaicans can expect closures and significant traffic restriction and redirections between Tuesday and Thursday.

"These traffic changes are associated with the need to facilitate movement and activities as part of the planned visit of several heads of state and governments and their delegations to Jamaica over the period," said the police.




"The affected areas are the New Kingston business district and environs, Liguanea, Mona, areas close to Cross Roads and central Kingston, as well as other areas to be notified upon further determination.

"Full details of these road restrictions and traffic changes will be published in the press over the coming days," added the cops.
