DPW Emergency Road Work Repairs To Weymouth Rhymer Highway Begin Today
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — The Department of Public Works (DPW) said road work on Weymouth Rhymer Highway west of the Donoe intersection begins today.
In preparation for construction, Island Roads Corporation will install temporary traffic control devices, construction signs, and barricades, DPW said.
Work is expected to continue through July 31, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., the Department said.
“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,” DPW spokeswoman Renee Exius said.
This portion of the project will address damages that were caused by the 2017 hurricanes on Route 38, heading West on Weymouth Rhymer Highway, Exius said.
The project is managed by DPW partners, Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division, a division of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
“The department is urging motorists to adhere to all safety controls and directives from on-site flaggers and traverse with extreme caution,” she said. “If possible, the department recommends using alternate traffic routes during the designated work hours.”
