St. Maarten – The Ministry of Public Housing, Spatial Planning, and Environment & Infrastructure (VROMI) announced Tuesday that the Middle Region Road will be closed for through traffic at 9:00 am today. The road will be closed off for the approximately 125 meters between the intersection of A. Th. Illidge Road and Middle Region Road and the intersection of Middle Region Road towards Gumbs Drive.

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 A. Th. Illidge Road. The works to be carried out are the excavation of the first 50 meters coming from the Illidge Road into Middle Region. That means 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.

“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,” the department’s leadership wrote in a statement

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,” the statement concluded.
