Windward Road, Mountain View Avenue intersection to be closed
The intersection of Windward Road and Mountain View Avenue in Kingston will be closed to vehicular traffic this Sunday, August 19, to facilitate National Water Commission (NWC) pipe laying works.
The closure will be between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
The National Works Agency (NWA) says the works are being done as part of a collaborative road development project being undertaken along Windward Road that was implemented in February.
Resulting from the closure, traffic will be prohibited from passing through the intersection along Windward Road.
Motorists will also not be able to make a left turn from Mountain View Avenue onto Windward Road or right turns from Windward Road onto Mountain View Avenue.
Motorists wishing to access Windward Road from Mountain View Avenue can turn left onto Cartridge Road then right onto Range Crescent, turn right onto Norman Terrace continuing onto Windward Road.
The opposite would maintain for persons travelling from Windward Road.
Persons may also opt to use Ellis Ave.
The NWA says that the project, which was implemented between Mountain View Avenue and Rockfort, will see the installation of water lines, the relocation of Jamaica Public Service poles and the reconstruction of 1.25 kilometres of the roadway, to include improved drainage.
The agency says the road component of the project, which was implemented as part of the Major Infrastructure Development Programme is valued at $141 million while the NWC component is being undertaken at a cost of $35 million.
The traffic signals at the intersection of Mountain View Avenue and Windward Road will also be improved under the project.
The NWA is advising affected persons to obey the instructions of flag persons and to exercise caution while travelling within the construction zone.
