Traffic alert: Diversion on Mosquito Creek

Drivers are advised of a proposed traffic change at Mosquito Creek, South Trunk Road to alleviate flooding issues.

The National Infrastructure Development Company (NIDCO) and Ministry of Works and Transport along with agent JUSAMCO Pavers Limited (JPL) proposed that the change in traffic would take place from Wednesday, October 23, 2019 to provide “early relief from perennial flooding that impacts commuters using the Mosquito Creek roadway as well as to facilitate construction of the northbound carriageway works, as part of the on-going completion of the Solomon Hochoy Highway extension to Point Fortin.”

Motorists are advised that:

- The existing traffic arrangement between Mosquito Creek and Godineau River will be modified

- Traffic will be diverted onto a newly constructed segment of the highway project at Mosquito Creek

- Traffic speed will be limited to 30 kilometres per hour

- There will be ongoing works along the Mosquito Creek as part of the ongoing highway project

Motorists are advised that no overtaking is allowed on the new section of the roadway.

Motorists are advised to proceed with caution and observe all directional signs, to be aware of on-going construction works and heavy equipment operating at the intersection and to comply with instructions from police officers.

NIDCO said all safety precautions are being taken.
