It could be a long, hot, dusty, noisy, frustrating traffic mess on St. John later this year.
In a statement, the Department of Public Works said it is "finalizing plans for construction of a traffic roundabout" at O’Connor’s Texaco, Boulon Center and the Winston Wells ball field. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in the fall of 2007, although the legal notice about the meeting said the start of work was "immenent". Let’s hope they do construction projects better than they spell. Here’s a video of the intersection.
Public Works has scheduled a "Public Information Meeting" about the project at
the Legislature Building next Thursday night. Design plans will be
available and people from Public Works and the Federal Highway Administration will answer questions.
"The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with information regarding the scope, timing and phasing of the proposed roadway construction project," DPW said. "Of particular importance for this information meeting is DPW’s desire to provide information regarding this project’s provisions for accommodating individuals with disabilities."
