Most of the main road between Montego Bay and Falmouth was designed and constructed in the 1960s and suffered from sub-standard geometric design and inadequate safety features. Congestion was a frequent occurrence even during off-peak hours. In addition, some sections of the pavement were repaired and patched so frequently that unacceptably high roughness indices took a toll on vehicles and increased their operating costs.
