The National Works Agency (NWA) is advising motorists and pedestrians that movement through the town of Black River, St Elizabeth, will be curtailed from tomorrow into Sunday morning.

It says the changes are to facilitate the staging of Black River Day activities by the St Elizabeth Chamber of Commerce, Black River Chapter, and the Parish Council.

The agency says changes in traffic flow will begin at 8 o'clock Saturday morning and remain in place until 2 o'clock on Sunday morning.

The NWA says the changes will see the closure of Church Street up to the Tax Administration of Jamaica office.

The NWA says School Street will allow for two way traffic, from the Sagicor Bank towards the Jamaica Public Service office.

The NWA also notes that a section of North Street will be closed from the Anglican Church, at the intersection of High Street and North Street, to Station Alley in front of the Hometime Cable Office.

It says Market Street will be converted to a two way thoroughfare to accommodate vehicles coming into and out of Black River from the direction of the bridge.

The NWA is also advising motorists and pedestrians to proceed with caution and obey the posted warning signs and the instructions of flag persons.
