Fiber Optic Cable Deployment Project Planned at Crown Mountain Road Along Route 334

The purpose of the Fiber Optic Cable Deployment Project is cold milling and asphalt installation, which will begin at Crown Mountain Cell Site, down Rte. 334 and ending at intersection with Crown Mountain Road on St. Thomas.

The work will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., July 13 through 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.

Summary: New Fiber Optic cable deployment will interconnect existing cell sites with the purpose of creating a more robust network, which will improve capacity, reliability, resiliency and increase the 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 U.S. Virgin Islands. 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.
