A Fiber Optic Cable Deployment Project on St. Thomas will travel from Rte. 338 in Estate Elizabeth, Rte. 33 Lionel P. Berry Scenic Drive, Northside Crown Mountain Road to Botanical Gardens in Estate Crown and Hawk, and Rte. 334 to the top of Crown Mountain, through the Intersection of Crown Mountain with Tower Drive (Rte. 334) going down to Veterans Drive (Morovian Highway Rte. 30)
The hours of work will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and road work will start June 25 and end July 25. The project will include excavations to install conduits, pull boxes and fiber optic cables.
Motorists can expect delays due to partial road closures and lane closures. Please exercise caution when traveling in these locations.
Project Summary: The purpose of the new fiber Optic cable deployment project is to interconnect existing cell sites to create a more robust network, which will improve capacity, reliability, resiliency and also increase performance of the existing communication network during natural disasters situations. It will also set the base for future deployment of new network technologies in the USVI.
Phase I of the project includes some milling and re-asphalt/road reconstruction where the roadway has been impacted. Roads will be partially closed for safety reasons. No parking will be allowed during project working hours. All vehicles must be removed prior to the beginning of construction.
Contractor: Bermudez Longo Diaz – Masso Inc.
