Gov. Turnbull and a number of Senators cut the ribbon to officially open the Enighed Port. The project was conceived more than 20 years ago, and completed several months ago. Island administrator Julien Harvey
said there is still work to be done, including added bathrooms, install
water, build an 800-square foot administration building, and add public
phones. Opening the port "is a positive step for St. John and the
entire Virgin Islands."
The $16 million facility includes 650 feet of dock space for cargo
carriers, 6 acres of cargo handling and storage, and a channel that can
accommodate vessels up to 175 feet long, the Virgin Islands Daily News reported.
