Drainage Problem Hits Old Road Junction

The junction connecting Old-Road and Tubman Boulevard, near President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s residence, was flooded in a downpour of rain Tuesday, June 10, resulting in a traffic impediment and leaving businesses out of service for the entire day. The only car wash in the area, a US$80,000 facility built at the very junction was also overwhelmed by the flood.  The carwash is also situated on the bank of a swamp that runs under that portion of Tubman Boulevard and covers a wide area adjacent to the President’s home.
