Trench and road works in Hamilton Parish mean a road closure will be extended, the Ministry of Public Works said.
A notice said traffic will be affected until November 19.
It said: “The Ministry of Public Works wishes to inform motorists that the ongoing Belco trenching project on Harrington Sound Road will be reaching the Manor House Bridge in Hamilton Parish.
“In order for the trench to cross under the bridge and road works to take place, the road closure will need to be extended.
“This road closure will be on Harrington Sound Road from Town Hill Road to Lolly’s Well Road starting Tuesday, October 19, 2021 to Friday November 19, 2021.”
The notice explained that access will be granted only to Manor House Drive residents.
It added that all other traffic will be rerouted via Middle Road or Harrington Hundreds Road.
The notice said: “Motorists are asked to avoid this road closure and to use the alternative routes listed for the duration of this trenching work.
“Signs will be placed to indicate detour routes.”
It added that traffic controls will be under the direction of Belco.
