Marcus Garvey Drive, between the intersection of East Avenue and Industrial Terrace, will be closed on Saturday to facilitate work by the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo).

The road will be closed to vehicular traffic between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The National works agency says this is to facilitate JPSCo's continued efforts to replace high tension wires in the vicinity of its Marcus Garvey Plant.

Resulting from the closure, motorists wishing to travel towards downtown Kingston from the direction of Tinson Pen will be diverted onto East Avenue and Spanish Town Road.

Those motorists travelling from downtown Kingston towards the Portmore Toll Road will be re-routed along Industrial Terrace and Spanish Town Road.

Motorists are being advised to obey the posted warning signs and instructions of flag-persons during the time specified.
