The Ministry of Public Housing, Spatial Planning, and Environment & Infrastructure (VROMI) is hereby informing the general public of the upcoming road closure for the project Middle Region infrastructure improvements project.
Residents in the area of Middle Region and surrounding environs should take note that as of Tuesday March 15th 2011 at 9:00 am the Middle Region Road will be closed for through traffic.
The road will be closed off between the intersection of Illidge Road and Middle Region Road and the intersection Middle Region Road towards Gumbs Drive. Total length of the area is approximately 125 meters.
As of Tuesday morning the main contractor will begin the physical execution of works with the removal of road surface and excavation works coming from the Illidge Road.
The works are carried out with the excavation of the first 50 meters coming from Illidge Road in to Middle Region which means that the first 50 meter stretch will not be accessible at all to vehicular traffic. The remaining 75 meters will only be accessible in the case of an emergency.
The section from the A.T Illidge Road will be closed off and Middle region will only be accessible from the Sucker Garden /Defiance area as of Tuesday March 15th 2011 at 9:00 am.
The Ministry of VROMI on behalf of the Government of St. Maarten is asking all motorists to pay extra attention to the traffic sign and detour route signs for a smooth and safe transition as the works for the Middle Region district infrastructure improvement project moves forward in the execution phase.
Residents were informed about the road closures in a town hall meeting last month.
The Government apologizes for any inconvenience they encounter as the district improvement project moves into high gear.
