As work on the Main Street Enhancement Project advances, it has now become necessary to close the thoroughfare to vehicular traffic to ensure continued progression of the road project. Still keeping with the agreement to complete work during night hours, the contractor now requires the closure of Main Street to the motoring public between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. The closure will begin Friday, Feb. 9, and will continue Mondays through Fridays, until further notice, according to a press release issued Thursday by the V.I. Department of Public Works.
“This project will enhance Main Street (Route 308), by providing new sidewalks, new roadway eurocobble® pavement, historic lighting, underground utilities, landscaping and improved drainage,” said Commissioner Nominee Nelson Petty Jr.
The project, which is fully funded by the Federal Highway Administration, is a critical and vital component of the continuing downtown Charlotte Amalie revitalization efforts.
