Brief: Savan Road Reopens to Small Vehicles

March 30, 2009 — The portion of Savan roadway that collapsed during Hurricane Omar has reopened, but large vehicles can't use it until permanent repairs are made, according to Public Works.
"Large vehicles such as safaris, water trucks, cement trucks and any type of heavy equipment are not to use this roadway," Public Works Commissioner Darryl Smalls said in statement Monday. "In fact, an eight-foot height-restriction device has been installed at the point where Fireburn Hill connects with the roadway to prevent oversized vehicles from traversing through the area."
Drivers are urged to pay attention to all traffic-control devices on the roadway. For additional information on the repairs, call the department's Office of Highway Engineering at 776-4844.
