Road work was set to begin Monday to improve drainage, build culverts and resurface the road between Crown Mountain Road and Black Point Hill in Estate Pearl.
Also effective Monday, motorists will no longer be able to make a right turn into the second access road to Kmart in Tutu Park Mall by McDonald’s between 3 and 7 p.m.
Tyrone Martin of the Public Works Department said the Estate Pearl work should wind up by May.
Martin said the work will not cause any inconvenience to residents or travelers, but he asked that residents remove any vehicles, construction materials and debris from the side of the roadway.
He also asked drivers to exercise caution in that area.
Signs noting the change in Estate Tutu are to go up today at the intersection without traffic lights, referred to as the second access to Kmart, Martin said.
“We’ve noticed a lot of congestion in that area despite the traffic signals at the first access,” Martin said.
The no-right-turn regulation will be
monitored for three weeks to see if it remedies traffic jams in the area.
Martin also said the road work begun last month on Route 382 in New Tutu has been completed.
Work at Raphune Hill should be finished by Valentine’s Day -— “a well-deserved sweetheart gift” to islanders, he said.
