The closure between 5 o’clock this morning and midnight is to facilitate the Jamaica Moves St Bess Fitness Celebrations.

Community Relations Officer at the NWA, Howard Hendriks, explains that motorists travelling west along High Street from Market Street intending to continue towards the Black River Hospital will be directed on to North Street at the Parish Church then left onto Central Road.

 A one-way system will be in effect along School Street, starting at the Jamaica Public Service Company’s offices.

Motorists travelling in an easterly direction from the hospital towards the town centre will be directed on to Exchange Drive and then right on to Lovers Lane.
