ST. THOMAS — The VI Department of Public Works (DPW) announced the start of more than $16 million in street, sidewalk and other improvements on St. Thomas starting Monday.

  • The current road closure on the first block of Main Street will extend to Store Tvaer Gade (corner of Palm Pasaage).

  • Motorists will be allowed to traverse Store Tvaer Gade heading towards Veterans Drive, or turn right onto Main Street at (at I-Levin) heading west.
  • During this detour, no parking will be allowed on Main Street. Temporary parking will be available on Store Tvaer Gade for deliveries only. 

The scope of the work is to include stopping asphalt;  connecting east-west water mains; connecting lighting and irrigation; complete sewer manhole; place concrete slab and eurocobble; WAPA water 12” stub installation; and potable water lines installation. 

This portion of the Main Street project will cost an estimated $13.3 million. 

Crown Bay Drainage and Pedestrian Improvements Project 

More than $2.8 million in road repairs work will be underway in the Crown Bay-Subbase area from September 30 to October 4. 

Asphalt milling and street reconstruction work will take place between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.  The area of construction is between the Department of Motor Vehicles and the DPW Maintenance Building.
