Motorists are being advised to use West Bay Road while work is carried out along the Esterley Tibbetts Highway throughout March.
A section of the road will be reduced to one lane each way for three to four weeks, starting this week, while the National Roads Authority carries out road repairs.
The lanes in the vicinity of Canal Point Drive, between SafeHaven Drive and the Century 21 roundabout, will be partially closed from Thursday. A trial run of the diversion plan will be carried out on Tuesday, according to the NRA.
Marion Pandohie of the NRA said workers would be repairing dips in inner lanes of the road.
According to the roads authority, the work will be conducted “primarily throughout the day with special consideration made for peak hour travel periods.”
The roadwork is expected to take three to four weeks.
For southbound traffic heading toward George Town, electronic message signs will be placed at the intersections at Governors Harbour and Cost-U-Less roundabouts approaching the work zone, advising of the work ahead and offering a detour by turning onto West Bay Road.
“We will be making adjustments to the signal timing at Lawrence Boulevard in order to improve traffic flow along West Bay Road during peak hours, and motorists are encouraged to use West Bay Road as an alternate route to the Esterley Tibbetts Highway during the construction period,” the NRA said in a statement.
