The National Works Agency (NWA) says the traffic signals at the Washington Boulevard/Duhaney Drive intersection in St Andrew will be taken out of operation for approximately eight hours tomorrow.

Manager, Communication and Customer Services at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, says the traffic signals will be turned off at 9:30 a.m. to facilitate the relocation of the traffic signal mast arms and control cabinet.

He says this forms part of works being undertaken along Washington Boulevard to improve the alignment of the lanes along critical sections of the major corridor. Similar works were recently completed at the Washington Boulevard/Molynes Road intersection.

Shaw explains that Washington Boulevard is one of those roadways in the Corporate Area, which have been identified to serve as an alternative route as major road works progresses at Three Miles and other locations.

The traffic signals will be switched back on at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow.

The police will assist with directing traffic through the intersection during the period the traffic signals will be suspended.

Road users are being advised to proceed with caution.
