The National Works Agency (NWA) is alerting motorists to the possibility of lengthy delays for traffic heading towards the Mandela Highway along Washington Boulevard because of flooding in the vicinity of the Six Miles Bridge

The NWA said the flooding appears to have been caused by a broken National Water Commission (NWC) main.

Manager of Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, explained that there are now long queues of traffic on the Boulevard heading towards Spanish Town, and said the delays may persist into late evening.

Motorists who normally use the Boulevard are being urged to use alternative routes, such as the Portmore leg of Highway 2000, or travel via Sligoville.

The NWA is appealing to motorists to exercise patience and caution as they traverse the Boulevard corridor while the relevant authorities work to have it operating normally within the shortest possible time.
