ALERT: DPW to Repair Section of Crown Mountain Road Beginning Jan. 29

In its ongoing effort to repair roads severely damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria, on Monday, Jan. 29, the V.I. Department of Public Works (DPW) will begin work on Route 335.

The work on Route 335, which is in the vicinity of Shibui Condominiums on Crown Mountain Road, will entail the reconstruction of two retaining walls that collapsed during the storms, making the road impassable. Once completed, residents will again be able to access their homes via Crown Mountain Road, according to a press release by DPW.

The street will remain closed to vehicular traffic, and residents will not be allowed to park on Crown Mountain Road in the vicinity of the road work while it’s in progress.

This project is fully funded through the Federal Highway Emergency Relief Program and is being managed by Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division.

  1. Prior to the hurricanes Crown Mountain road was undergoing construction that was never-ending. I hope that these Federally-funded repairs will actually be completed efficiently and correctly. Just because the Feds pay for most, or of all of it, doesn’t mean it should be milked as a jobs program. The Federally-funded construction by E&M grocery on Hull Bay road was ridiculously never-ending (and still not completed). Never saw more than two people, and usually just one person, working on it, and mostly on weekends. This should be investigated by the Feds.
