DPW to Continue Emergency Road Work on Route 753, Altona Lagoon Section.

ER Project: Altona Lagoon, St. Croix

Location: Route 753 East

Summary: The Department of Public Works (DPW) informs the community of emergency relief (ER) road work taking place in the Altona Lagoon area of St. Croix, on Route 753 East. The box culvert at this site sustained substantial damage during the 2017 storms and is also scheduled for repairs.

The project contractor –Virgin Islands Paving Inc.– has completed stabilizing the subgrade and placed an asphalt base course at a section of the failed roadway.

The contractor is currently installing concrete swales and gutters.  Construction of a new bridge structure at Lagoon should commence within the next few months.

The roadway near the Caribbean Kidney Center will be addressed once an assessment has been made regarding groundwater issues in the area.

Follow DPW for more updates on the status of Emergency Relief Projects.
