Construction fencing has gone up around the Texaco station in Cruz Bay as workers prepare to remove the underground fuel storage tanks, according to a report by the Virgin Islands Daily News. The closing is due to plans to construct a traffic roundabout at the spot where five roads intersect.
That means the only place to get gasoline in Cruz Bay is E and C Service (pictured). The service station recently remodeled and added self-service pumps.
The Daily News said Chevron, owner of the station, expects it may take two months to clear the area, while the latest estimate for the roundabout construction timetable is two years.
