Road crews pave around utility pole

Crews from the Water and Power Authority are expected this week to replace a utility pole which is smack, dab in the middle of the newly built Enighed Pond access road.  Authority executive director Darlan Brin said he asked WAPA three months ago to move the pole.  "We couldn’t wait," said Brin, according to the Virgin Islands Daily News.  So, the paving company from St. Croix worked around the pole, paving the roadway and putting orange-and-white barricades around the pole.  "There bluntly was a coordimnation problem," said Glen Rothgeb, chief operating officer of WAPA.  "We are aware we should have had the poles removed," he said according to the Daily News.
