A section of the Nolan Hill to Border main road in St. Andrew, will be closed to vehicular traffic starting on Monday. The closure, which will be in effect for three months, is to facilitate repairs to a breakaway in Mount Ogle.

During the closure, motorists travelling from Stony Hill to Mount Ogle will turn left at Stony Hill Square on to the Stony Hill to Parks Road main road, continue to the Cavaliers District, then on to the St. Christopher to Glengoffe road, also known as Burn Shop Road, which leads to Lawrence Tavern / Mount Ogle District.

Motorists travelling from the direction of St. Mary to Lawrence Tavern will take the first right turn, after the Toms River Bridge, on to the Unity to Toms River main road; continue through Florence Hill, Belmont and Oberlin District into Lawrence Tavern.

Stephen Shaw, manager of communication and customer services at the National Works Agency, said the roadway was reduced to single lane several months ago. He said that the rehabilitative works will include construction of a retaining wall, drainage construction and the reinstatement of the roadway.
