The National Works Agency says a section of Marcus Garvey Drive at Industrial Terrace has been closed following yesterday’s flooding in the area caused by heavy rains associated with Hurricane Matthew.

The National Works Agency (NWA) says this was done as a precautionary measure. 

The NWA is now working to lower a section of the road to rechannel excess storm water into the sea.
