The Department of Public Works is proud to serve its community in more ways than just road repairs. This year, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, DPW offices collected non-perishable food items to donate to non-profit organizations territory-wide.

On St. Croix and St. John, DPW staff donated items to Catholic Charities, and on St. Thomas donations were sent to the Family Resource Center.

While the Department was in the giving spirit, it also received a gift. St. Thomas Administrator Avery Lewis coordinated an effort with Southland Gaming Chief Operating Officer Shaine Gaspard and Director of Public Relations Jason Charles to donate 120 turkeys to DPW employees on St. Thomas, as a thank-you for all the work completed throughout the year.

Are they going to get white and orange lines? It’s been many months since the East End Road was partially renewed however we have no lines at all on the roads. This is very unsafe. What’s up with that?

Can you guys patch the roads leading to Bordeaux in STT next? Those roads are bad. Someone is going to get in an accident. Thanks!

Better get King St in Frederiksted done… some poor child is going to break a leg on parade day.

The Department of Public Works is continuing to inform the community of progress on the Paul E. Joseph Stadium. DPW contractor - GEC, LLC - is presently working on the entrance to the Paul E. Joseph Stadium.

A major milestone was attained when the left field entry tower was completed and the traditional red roof was placed. Work is now occurring on the right field entry tower. The top wall was poured last week Friday and the next step will be to place the roof on the right tower. This project is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
