LBJ Sewer Work Will Affect Traffic

Work will begin Monday on phases two and three of the LBJ Sewer Force Main Project, the V.I. Waste Management Authority announced, causing traffic delays and lane closures during the six months the project is expected to last.

The project includes installing 4,500 linear feet of structural liner inside the existing 24-inch ductile iron sewer line pipe. The project will start in the vicinity of LBJ Housing Community adjacent to the V.I. Water and Power Authority water distribution tank, and will proceed east along Northside Road – Route 75 – and south along Queen Mary Highway – Route 70.

The project will end in the vicinity of the intersection of Queen Mary Highway and the entrance to Queste Verde Condominiums by Beeston Hill.

For the duration of the project, there will be a temporary lane closure during the working hours, seven days a week, sometimes including 24-hours per day. The left lane will be closed in 1,000-foot intervals and will be re-opened at the end of each work day.

Active work areas will be secured daily with barricades with reflective surfaces.

The Waste Management Authority asked motorists to adhere to the directives of the flagmen and to drive slowly when approaching the construction zone. Motorists were also encouraged to use alternate routes during this construction period.
