INFRASTRUCTURE: Last phase of work on the Sandy-Ground bridge scheduled for June 23 to July 2


The Collectivity of Saint-Martin has programmed the work to complete the repair of the Sandy-Ground bridge.

The complete rehabilitation of the structure was carried out in 2021 for a total amount of 1.4 million euros. An intervention remains to be carried out to restore optimal operation of the bridge. The company holding the public contract will therefore be on site from June 23rd.

The work is scheduled from June 23 to July 2, 2022. Constraints are to be expected for both road traffic and maritime traffic.


Closure to road traffic:

Constraints on maritime traffic:

– Last bridge lift on Wednesday 22 at 17:00 p.m.

– Next scheduled lifting, subject to any site contingencies, on Sunday July 3 at 8:30 a.m.

– Maintenance of the possibility of passage of annexes under the right bank span (Marigot side) only.

– Boats are not allowed to cross during the construction period.

– Signage will be installed.

Security forces (ambulance, firefighters and gendarmes) will be positioned at Sandy-Ground. A security service is set up by the Collectivity, on the nights of Friday 24, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26, from 18 p.m. to 00 a.m. in the parking lot of the Alberic Richards stadium, to allow residents who wish to leave their vehicles on the Marigot side. . A system of free shuttles has been set up on the Sandy Ground side, with regular rotations.

In case of emergency, the SNSM can coordinate the passage under the bridge of the inflatable boat.
