GOVERNOR ORDERS $3.4M RELEASED FOR ROAD REPAIR

Dec. 20, 2001 – Help is on the way for the territory's rain-ravaged roads and others in dire need of repair.
Gov. Charles W. Turnbull announced on Thursday that he has directed the Office of Management and Budget to release to the Public Works Department $3.4 million of a $5.5 million fund earmarked for road work.
In a Government House release, the governor said the funding is "earmarked for road paving which will provide much-needed maintenance and repair services to roads severely impacted by recent rains."
On St. Thomas, paving is scheduled for the Wintberg Heights road from the Donoe bypass eastward to connecting roads; the Estate Contant road; the Frydenjoj Gold Hill road; the East Caret Bay road; and the Wintberg Lemon Tree road and associated roads.
On St. Croix, Estate Anna's Hope and William's Delight roads are slated for major refurbishing. Also scheduled is construction of William's Delight drainage and Mount Pleasant west sidewalk/recreation projects.
On St. John, projects include paving Fish Bay Road and several other roads.
The release of the funds will allow Public Works to move forward with the bidding and construction phases of the projects, "improving the territory's fragile infrastructure," Turnbull said.
