Red Hook terminal moving along

Redhook_1
The huge new ferry dock at Red Hook is more than half complete, according to the V.I. Port Authority.  The facility’s proper name is "Red Hook Intermodal Transit Facility."

Officials said the $9.3 million project is 65% complete  Plans call for an 8,000 square foot building which includes a bar, a newsstand, six ticket counters, restrooms, outdoor seating and a  parking lot. "I did not envision it being so big," Darlan Brin, executive director of VIPA told the Virgin Islands Daily News. "But we might as well have room to grow.  We need elbow room."

Most of the facility is above water, but more than 100 steel pilings filled with concrete were driven as deep as 68 feet into the water to support the structure.  A spokesman for the contractor said work should be complete by Thanksgiving.

  1. I have been at the ferry dock at Marthas Vineyard, Nantucket,and Block Island many many many times, waiting in line like everyone else waiting my turn and NEVER did any one cut in front of the line like its done on St John and St Thomas, I never realized how rude you WHITE FOLK ISLANDERS are. I only hope now with the new facility at Red Hook you can hire someone to organize this circus.
