CHRISTIANSTED TRAFFIC DETOUR SCHEDULED AGAIN FOR THURSDAY

WHILE CREWS INSTALL FIRE HYDRANT

Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority contractor Rotating Equipment Corporation will extend the work period by one day for the installation of a fire hydrant in Christiansted due to unanticipated field conditions associated with buried water lines. The hydrant is being installed on Queen Street just north of the Queen and Prince Streets intersection.  On Thursday, the section of Queen Street between Prince and King Cross Streets will be closed to through traffic again from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Patrons of Brady’s Restaurant on Queen Street will have access through the intersection at Queen and Prince Streets. There will be no scheduled water interruptions during the work period.

To ensure the safety of work crews, pedestrians and other vehicles in the area, motorists are asked to drive cautiously and follow all traffic directions.

 

WAPA appreciates the understanding of the public during this water service enhancement project.

 

Note: The Christiansted Fire Hydrant Installation Project began in July and is scheduled to be completed by mid-October. Twelve water hydrants will be installed in the town area at a project cost of $125,424.00.
