The Governor's in there pitching for millions of federal stimulus dollars for the Territory's roads, including some on St. John. High on the list is almost $5 million for Gifft Hill Road from the Westin all the way to its intersection with Centerline.
Anyone who's every driven on the island knows how the hill from the Fish Bay entrance past the old Gifft Hill School is one treacherous trip, thanks to potholes, cement spills, and just plain traffic, no matter how beautiful it is at sunset, as carlycof proved with her photo here, from Flickr.
Anyway, the Governor's 'certified' repairs to Gifft Hill as one of the ways he'd like to spend $20 million dollars from the Federal transportation people. Funds would also be used for such things as guard rails, pavement markings and signs on Centerline into Coral Bay, according to a statement from the Governor's office.
