The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority is advising the public of the closure of a portion of St. Croix Route 70, on Sunday, November 18, 2018, beginning at 6:30 am.

Route 70, from the Questa Verde entrance to the Golden Rock/ Christiansted Bypass intersection (Rt.70/Rt.723) will remain closed until the work is complete. Motorists traveling along that roadway will be rerouted at the intersection of Route 723 and Route 70, as well as at the intersection of Route 63 and Route 70.

This road closure will allow WAPA’s contractor GEC to install a new 24” Water Main as part of the Pressure Management Plan Phase II Project, funded under the Drinking Water Capital Improvement Grant Program.

While work is being performed, motorists are urged to adhere to all traffic directions to ensure the safety of crews, pedestrians and other drivers.

There will be NO water or electrical service interruption as a result of this roadwork.

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