Don't bet on it!!! I heard it took 13 years to complete the road between Negril and Montego Bay. We just got back a few weeks ago and you drive on about 5 miles of highway then back to the city road. Heck, we were even on a dirt road for awhile.

Hello Devilette, No. The road construction will still be going on.

Hopefully, you will take a negative and turn it into a positive.

This is noramally a 90 minute drive. Right now it takes an hour longer because of the construction work. If you are travelling at night, then get some sleap so as to be ready to party when you arrrive at the hotel. If it is still daylight, then you will enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of mountains and sea all along the route. If you are impatient then take a plane. Cost is about $65 per person. ENJOY your stay in Ochee!
