Main Street’s Route 308 Reopens Monday

Community Center / News / Virgin Islands / November 26, 2018

ST. THOMAS — The Main Street Enhancement Project continues to make advancements as major efforts during this past tourism off-season were realized, the Department of Public Works announced Saturday.

Beginning today, the roadway will be open to thru traffic. Motorists will be allowed to travel from East to West straight through to Rothschild Francis Market Square. Drivers will also be able to turn left onto Store Tvaer Gade from Main Street, D.P.W. said.

In partnership with the Main Street business district stakeholders, D.P.W. and its contractor Island Roads Corporation have worked to complete as much of the project prior to the beginning of tourism’s busy season, which traditionally begins in December, the release said.

The segment of Store Tvaer Gade from Backstreet (Wimmelskafts Gade) to Main Street will remain closed to allow workers to complete the reconstruction of the roadway, the release said.

D.P.W. Commissioner Nelson Petty said he was pleased with the contractor’s efforts in order to meet the goals established by the team. “The cooperation of stakeholders and the patience of the community is much appreciated,” Mr. Petty said. “The community can now get a glimpse of what the final product will look like.”

The contractor will refocus efforts on the side streets and will begin work on Post Office Square, according to the release. All work will be conducted primarily at night during the tourism season.

For more information on the Main Street Enhancement Project, contact the department’s St. Thomas office at (340) 776-4844.
