Work on restarting the long-delayed street addressing initiative is under way with crews having completed field work on St. Thomas.

“This is a crucial project for the territory that will provide a systematic, logical, and standardized addressing system, a system that can save lives wherein addresses can be located and utilized by emergency responders, postal services, utilities, GPS-based systems for navigation and other crucial services,” Lt. Gov. Tregenza Roach said in a news release.
