Centerline Update

Nine Months to Fix Centerline?

According to a story in the St. John Source, repairs to the crumbling section of Centerline Road near Coral Bay will not be completed until March 2014. Yes, you read that right – March 2014.

According to the article, bids for the job will go out next week and a contract is expected to be awarded next month. Work is slated to begin in September and is estimated to take six months.

We all know that the road is crumbling and the rainy season is fast approaching. We here at NOSJ are all for island time, but this seems a bit unreasonable to us. What do you think?
