EMERGENCY RELIEF WORK ON DOROTHEA COMMENCES MONDAY

ST. THOMAS – The Department of Public Works (DPW) is advising the community of upcoming roadwork in Estate Dorothea, near the Department of Agriculture. In preparation for construction, Island Roads Corporation will begin the installation of temporary traffic control devices, construction signs, and barricades on April 26. Work is expected to continue through July 31, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

This project is a part of a larger Emergency Relief project, that entails completing storm damage repairs on various locations on St. Thomas and St. John. This portion of the project will address damages that were caused by the 2017 hurricanes on Route 333 in Estate Dorothea, below the North Side Fire Station. This project is managed by DPW partners, Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division, a division of the FHWA.

The department is urging motorists to adhere to all safety controls and directives from on-site flaggers and traverse with extreme caution. If possible, the department recommends using alternate traffic routes during the designated work hours.
