By BBN Staff: As part of the ongoing rehabilitation of the George Price Highway between Roaring Creek and Iguana Creek, works will commence on the highway and its vicinity and will continue for the next 18 months.
According to a release from GOB’s Press Office, the Ministry of Works and contractor “Tiechroeb and Sons Ltd.” are committed to keeping the highway safe and passable during this time, and are asking the public to please exercise extreme caution when approaching any location where work is being carried out and to be guided by the road signs and flag personnel during the execution of these works.
The release says that works are scheduled to commence at the “Z Curve” (Mile 53) near Teakettle Village and Warrie Head from March 22, 2018, through September 1, 2018, and as a result that area will be temporarily closed and a detour will be provided to allow the flow of traffic during the time.
Motorists are advised to watch for warning signs and cones along the highway and watch for men at work on and around the highway during normal work hours.
The release ends by saying that, “motorists be ready to experience traffic delays, be prepared to fully stop, reduce speed to 15mph when approaching warning signs, or as indicated by traffic controllers wearing orange vests.”
