Alert: Cyril E. King Airport Road Closing for Four Days

Oct. 23, 2007 — The exit lane from the Cyril E. King Airport will be closed from 7 a.m. Tuesday through 5 p.m. Friday while workers repave part of the airport access road.
Drivers heading east on Julian Jackson Drive must continue east to the Moravian Church intersection traffic light and turn onto the westbound lane to enter the Airport Road or travel through Subbase to the Airport Road entrance, according to a news release from the V.I. Waste Management Authority (VIWMA). Westbound motorists turning onto the Airport Road will not be impacted by the work. Drivers exiting the airport will be allowed to proceed to the traffic light at the intersection of the Julian Jackson Drive.
All drivers are asked to slow down, follow posted signs and be aware of the crews and heavy equipment in the area.
"The executive director would like to express her deepest apologies and sincere regret for the continuing road closures, inconvenient traffic interruptions, untimely public notices, poor site conditions and lengthy project-completion schedule," the release said. "The complex nature of repair work to this 30-inch sewer main was complicated and extended due to the need to rotate the Cancryn Main pump station operation nightly and return to normal service early each morning to avoid sewage bypasses, and the discovery of unexpected field conditions which could not be anticipated. Our dedicated staff and contractor, H&R Mechanical, have worked diligently to complete this first phase of rehabilitation of this very deteriorated section of the sewer system."
