MAGENS BAY ROAD REPAIRS HAVE BEGUN

Feb. 5, 2002 – Work on repairing pothole-ridden Magens Bay Road started Tuesday, according to Rod Platzke, a Federal Highway Administration program manager based at the Public Works Department on St. Thomas.
The project was slated to begin Jan. 2, Platzke said, but was delayed while Public Works created an erosion control plan. He said the department received approval on Jan. 31 to begin the project.
While work is under way on Magens Bay Road, traffic will be restricted to one lane in at least two areas between Louisenhoj Castle and the beach — at the top of the hill by the castle and near the turnoff to Peterborg Road. Flag crew members and signs will direct traffic in the restricted areas.
The Magens road project, which is federally funded, is expected to cost $1.6 million and take about six months to complete.
