Coastal Zone Relocation Project Will Affect St. Croix Traffic From Five Corners To Breezes Restaurant
FIVE CORNERS INTERSECTION: The area under construction starting Tuesday starts on the border between Estate La Grande Princesse and Estate Golden Rock and follows the road East and South to the end of Condo Row.
CHRISTIANSTED – The V.I. Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) advises residents of St. Croix and the public that construction on the Coastal Interceptor Relocation Project will begin Tuesday, May 30, 2017.
Traffic wlll be impacted on the back road from the Five Corners intersection to Breezes restaurant.
Two-way traffic will remain in effect; however, motorists are asked to reduce their speed and proceed with caution in the area.
SD&C Inc. will be performing the work, which involves the relocation of a 1,918 linearfoot submerged wastewater pipeline further inland to reduce infiltration and improve water quality.
The overall scope involves the installation of a new pump station, piping, and manholes.
The section along the public road consists of the installation of one manhole and 1200 linear feet of 4- and 6-inch piping.
This project is federally funded by a VITEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The work is expected to take three weeks to complete.
“VIWMA apologizes for any inconvieniences this may cause,” it said in a prepared statement.
