Modica – road closure

The mayor of Modica has decided to shut a 100m stretch of the Corso every day of the week – from Monday to Thursday from 2000 to 2300, Friday and Saturday – 2000 to 2400 and Sunday 1800 to 2400, till the end of September.
The signage is appalling, they seem to think that a piece of A4 stuck on a lamppost 2km from the site is adequate. There are no alternatives routes signed. The information given – Piazza Monumento and Largo San Pietro dont even exist on Google maps. All there is are a few signs saying you mustn’t park.
To avoid being caught out and left on the wrong side of the road closure – park on hte side of Modica you want to leave from – the top of Corso Umberto if you want to go Ragusa, or the bottom if you’re going onto Scicli, Ispica, etc.
If you fail – here is a map showing the alternative routes. The blue arrows show the one way system.
