CHRISTIANSTED — The VIPD Traffic Investigation Bureau is advising the motoring public that on Monday, May 4, VIAPCO will be completing road paving at the stoplights near the Sunny Isle Shopping Center. The roadwork is slated to begin at 4 a.m. and is scheduled to take four to six hours.
The intersection will be closed to traffic during this time. Eastbound traffic on the Melvin Evans Highway will be diverted towards Queen Mary Highway, vicinity of Oriental Bank (formerly ScotiaBank).
