The lane closure on Palmetto Road will be extended through October 31, the Government said today.

A Government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Public Works wishes to inform motorists that BELCO will be continuing their trenching work on Palmetto Road Devonshire in the westbound lane towards the Bus Depot entrance.

“Palmetto Road will have one lane open for traffic and its flow will be changed to the following conditions:

  • From morning rush hours 7:30 am – 9:00 am traffic flow will be westbound only along Palmetto Road.
  • Traffic Flow for the Tynes Bay Domestic Waste Drop Off will also be westbound only during rush hour to allow for motorists to enter through the exit gate to gain access to drop off area and exit through entrance gate to merge with Palmetto Road’s westbound traffic.
  • After 9:00 am the Palmetto Road traffic flow will be eastbound only until the following morning rush hour.
  • Motorists wanting to gain access to the Tynes Bay Facility will have to detour at the roundabout via North Shore Road to Dock Hill to enter on to Palmetto Road to gain access to the drop off driveway.

“The lane closure will be ongoing until Monday October 31st, 2022. Working hours will be from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm daily, Monday through Sunday.

“Motorists are asked to avoid this lane closure section on Palmetto Road by using alternative routes via Robert’s Avenue, Frog Lane, North Shore Road, Dock Hill or Middle Road for the duration of this trench work.

“Traffic controls will be under the direction of BELCO and the Ministry of Public Works representatives and will be managed through traffic control signs and stop and go signs during rush hours.

“The Ministry of Public Works wishes to encourage the full cooperation of the public and apologizes for any inconvenience that may result.
