Construction and Driving of Piles at Frederiksted Pier to Commence on May 14

The Virgin Islands Port Authority informs the public that its contractor, Eleven Construction, will begin the reconstruction of the tender landing pier at the Ann E. Abramson Marine Facility in Frederiksted, St. Croix.  The project will start on Tuesday, May 14, 2024.

 

The construction will entail driving steel piles on the south side of the pier. During the construction, the community may have inconveniences such as noise, vibrations, and restricted facility access. The contractor will make every effort to minimize disruptions and complete the project as soon as possible.  VIPA apologizes in advance for any inconvenience the construction may cause and thanks the public for its patience and cooperation during the project.  Questions or concerns about the project should be directed to the VIPA engineering office in St. Croix at (340) 778-1012 or via email at PBeyer@viport.com or MDenis@viport.com.

 

The tender landing pier was primarily used by cruise excursions, dive boat operators, and local fishermen before it was damaged by two Category 5 hurricanes in 2017. The tender pier also served as an auxiliary landing for the tendering of cruise passengers. VIPA has hired Eleven Construction to build a new 80-foot-long by 50-foot-wide pier to replace the damaged structure.
