Melvin Evans Highway and Container Port Rd. Intersection Road Closure October 8-11

U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS – The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority would like to inform the public of an upcoming road closure at the intersection of the Melvin Evans Highway and Container Port intersection. The duration of this road closure will be from Saturday, October 8th at 8 AM to Tuesday, October 11th, at 5 PM.

The road closure will be to de-energize the transmission line from Richmond to Midland and allow contractors to complete work in an electrical manhole on the roadway. The construction activities are part of the Authority’s various undergrounding projects to move overhead power lines underground to improve overall grid resilience.

Traffic signs, roadblocks, and flaggers will be on-site to help maintain and detour traffic. Please see traffic plan below. The Authority apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the public for its cooperation and patience.
