Subbase Lane Closure Scheduled for Thursday and Friday

(Thursday, July 31, 2014)

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority has scheduled a lane closure for Thursday, July 31 and Friday August 1, in the Subbase area on St. Thomas.  One lane of vehicular traffic from the former Joe’s Discount to the Crown Bay Marina entrance will be closed from 9am to 4pm each day, while crews break the road surface to determine the distance from the surface to the pipes and conduits beneath.   This roadwork is necessary to determine the feasibility of installing 18 and 24 inch water main lines and an electric duct bank, to allow for completion of the Dept. of Public Works’ project to replace the damaged drain.

The area will be accessible to pedestrians. Motorists are asked to observe signs and flaggers directions for the safety of the crew, pedestrians and other drivers.

No water or electrical interruption is anticipated during this time, and every effort will be made to restore normal traffic flow to the area as soon as possible.  The Authority apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this lane closure.
