A six-month wait for a power transformer has delayed the opening of the new $9.3 million dock and marine terminal at Red Hook. "The building’s finished with the exception of electricity and final paint," said Andy Smith, president of the contracting company, Islands Roads Corp. He told the Virgin Islands Daily News that the 8,000-square-foot building includes concession areas, a bar, a newsstand, six ticket counters and restrooms.
It had been hoped the facility would be open by Thanksgiving, but a sharp increase in the cost of cement required the V.I. Port Authority to take new bids for the project.
