VIWMA Begins Mobilization of LBJ Sewer Force Main Project

The V.I. Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) advises St. Croix residents that the authority will begin the mobilization for Phases 2 and 3 of the LBJ Sewer Force Main Project on Friday, Feb. 22. The initial mobilization work will include the placement of 18-inch piping for the pump around of sewage from manhole to manhole. This will prevent any spillage of wastewater while structural lining is being inserted into existing portions of sewer line.
The scope of work for the project includes the installation of 4500 linear feet of a structural liner inside of the existing 24-inch ductile iron sewer line pipe. The project will commence in the vicinity of JFK Housing Community adjacent to the WAPA Water Distribution Tank and will travel east along Northside Road (Route 75) and south along Queen Mary Highway (Route 70). The project will end in the vicinity of the intersection of Queen Mary Highway and the entrance to Queste Verde Condominiums by Beeston Hill.
For the duration of the project, there will be temporary lane closure during the working hours on Mondays through Sundays, which may include up to 24 hours per day. The left lane will be closed in 1000-foot intervals and will be re-opened at the end of each work day. Active work areas will be secured daily with barricades with reflective surfaces.
Motorists are asked to adhere to the directives of the flagmen and to reduce vehicular speed when approaching the construction zone. Motorists are also encouraged to use alternate routes during this construction period.
For more information, contact the Office of Communications Management at 715-9110 or 690-4218.
