Are the roads a mess? Carnival road closings at the Fort Christian Parking Lot coincided with the closure of Norre Gade for the repairs of the former Squirrel Cage Restaurant resulting in near gridlock in Charlotte Amalie. Additionally, one stretch of lane remains closed on Polyberg Hill and the Virgin Islands  Waste Management Authority continues repairs to sewage lines in Tutu, slowing traffic due to unpaved stretches of road and partially closing lanes during peak hours. Now Commissioner of Public Works Darryl Smalls says things are better the road over Polyberg hill got major paving yesterday and more is coming. They plan to have two lanes open over Polyberg hill by week's end. Same story on Brookman road, the two lanes are about to open. And the Long Bay road work is almost over.  Almost finished.
