Chief Works Officer Geoffrey Vaughn told Stabroek News yesterday that the work that has started on the avenue is part of a project to rehabilitate it. When finished, the road will be wider, to facilitate more traffic and a better flow at the two intersections at Camp Street and Vlissengen Road and Irving Street.

The road will also have a divider down the middle, which will have openings at critical access points, and will be equipped with street lights on both sides. While a project of such magnitude would take up to 6 months, Vaughn said, they are expecting to finish it by the end of July.

Stabroek News also learned from a source that the road is slated to be renamed sometime in the future.
