On Thursday, King Cross Street from Strand Street to King Street will be closed to vehicular traffic for paving. The paving will then move to the intersection of Queen Cross Street and Strand to the Boardwalk and to Strand Lane.

It is anticipated that the repaving of these areas will be fully completed on Friday.

Underground work will continue on King Street  Work crews are trenching, laying conduits and covering up the open trench daily from Prince Street to King Cross Street until that section of King Street is completed.  Lower areas of King Street and Christiansted town can be accessed from the Christiansted Bypass.
