As work continues on the Morvant Junction Upgrade Project, the Ministry of Works and Transport warns there will be a temporary traffic disruption, roughly for the next six months, between the Priority Bus Route and Maritime Roundabout—inclusive of 5th Street, 6th Street and 10th Avenue in Barataria.

The Ministry says the disruption will take place from Monday 24th January to Monday 18th July 2022, with scheduled hours of work running from 8 pm to 4 am, and 8 am to 4 pm.

The Ministry explains the disruption is necessary in order to facilitate Road Rehabilitation and Drainage works, as it executes Package-4 of the Project.

The Ministry is urging motorists to proceed with caution and observe all directional signs and barriers and be aware of heavy equipment entering and exiting the site.

Motorists are advised to drive at a reduced speed on approaching the work zone, and especially, should drive with caution on all milled (possibly uneven) surfaces. 

The Ministry also is encouraging motorists to comply with instructions from Police Officers who will be on-site to facilitate a safe and orderly flow of traffic.
