Emergency Road Closure Scheduled for St. Thomas' Beltjen Rd. Thursday

(Wednesday, November 09, 2016)

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority has scheduled an emergency road closure for St. Thomas’ Beltjen Road on Friday, November 10th. Beginning at 9 a.m., Beltjen Road will be closed from the intersection by Wet Willy’s, south to the intersection of Lover’s Lane and Beltjen Rd. Work is estimated to be completed by 4 p.m. 

Traffic will be rerouted away from Beltjen Rd. to allow water crews to repair a leaking 6-inch water main in the area of the Authority’s Hatchett Substation. Motorists are asked to follow directional signs and flagmen instructions for the safety of crews, pedestrians and other drivers.

The Authority apologizes for the inconvenience caused by this road closure, and ensures the public that every effort will be made to restore vehicular traffic as quickly as possible. 

For additional information about the upcoming road closure and water line repair, contact WAPA Water Distribution at 775-5873 or e-mail
