Road Closure for Federal Highway Emergency Repairs on Route 335 to Begin June 2

The Department of Public Works advises the motoring public that effective today, Tuesday, June 2, Route 335 is closed to all thru traffic until further notice. Route 335, which is located in upper Lindbergh Bay, intersects with Route 303 in the south and with Route 33 – Crown Mountain Road, in the north. A section of this roadway has been compromised; therefore, the roadway is now closed to all thru traffic. The road work will continue until further notice.

The compromised section of the roadway on St. Thomas was damaged during the 2017 hurricanes and has continued to deteriorate into its current condition. This site is included in the FHA Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division Design Build Solicitation that will receive proposals on June 11.

Residents who live below the road closure must now access their homes from Route 303. Residents who live above must use Crown Mountain Road – Route 33 to access their homes.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
