UDC to undertake $160 million road work in Ocho Rios
The Urban Development Company (UDC) is to spend $160 million to undertake road works along Main Street in Ocho Rios, St Ann.
The works will begin on Monday and are to last for eight months.
It will include upgrading and repaving of the road, upgrading of drainage and water mains, landscaping works and widening of sidewalks.
The UDC says all efforts will be made to minimise disruptions to the public noting that the programme will fall during the busy tourist season.
The road serves as the major thoroughfare through the resort town.
The agency says the road is being upgraded through the Ocho Rios Main Street Improvement Project, which forms a part of the overall multibillion dollar redevelopment programme for the town.
