TEMPORARY FIX FOR COLLAPSED NORTH SIDE ROAD

Sept. 29, 2001 – What the government describes as "temporary repairs" are under way at the collapsed section of Crown Mountain Road (Route 33) by the trash bins west of Lulu's Cafe and will continue through Monday.
Majestic Construction crew members are working at the site between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily, and the work is requiring the periodic closing of one lane of the road in the immediate area, known as Man-O-War Gut. However, two-way traffic is being maintained with the use of flag and sign personnel, a Government House press release stated.
"The motoring public is advised to drive cautiously through this area and reduce speed to 5 mph and be prepared to stop when necessary," the release said.
The section of the well-traveled roadway is subject to flooding in times of heavy rain and runoff. The shoulder of the road bed collapsed into the adjacent deep ravine nearly two years ago when Hurricane Lenny passed through the territory. Since then, sawhorses have been set up around the broken asphalt to alert motorists to danger.
