WAPA Appeals to Motorists to Traverse Through Road Project Areas with Extreme Caution

Oct 25, 2021
The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority is asking that motorists proceed with caution when traversing in and around the electrical undergrounding construction site on the St. Croix south shore.

Crews began work in late September on the project that extends from the Melvin Evans Highway to Wilfred “Bomba” Allick Port and Transshipment Center at Krause Lagoon. Although flaggers are on site to assist with traffic control and directional signs are posted, there have been an increasing number of instances where motorists are proceeding through the work area at high rates of speed and ignoring the directions of roadside personnel.

The Container Port project is one of two electrical undergrounding projects underway on St. Croix. A similar initiative is taking shape on St. John in downtown Cruz Bay.

At all the sites, WAPA encourages motorists to traverse through the work area with caution and to heed the directions of flaggers and traffic control devices installed along the path of the projects. The Authority strives to maintain safety for pedestrians, motorists and work crews.
