FREDERIKSTED – The Public Works Department said road work will continue on a part of Route 70 known as Emancipation Drive on Monday.

The road repair project stretches from the Hannah’s Rest traffic signal light, in the vicinity of the police headquarters to Claude O. Markoe Elementary School, DPW Commissioner Gustav James said.

The work begins at 10 p.m. Monday September 14 and goes all night until 6 a.m., James said.

The road repairs are expected to run through Friday September 25, he said.

James urged the motorists to exercise caution and look for the flagmen and traffic signs as they drive the areas under repair.
“The public is asked to adhere to the directions given by the flagmen to ensure their safety,” he said. “The goal of the Department remains that we undertake a successful project with minimal impact on the community. “

The Public Works commissioner asked for the motoring public’s cooperation and apologized for any inconvenience that the road repairs present.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
