Construction To Begin On $22 Million Gordon Finch Molasses Pier Facility

CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) recently completed the first phase of the Gallows Bay Port Transformation Project, which converts the port from mixed-use passenger and cargo facility to an upscale mini-cruise and yacht seaport.

All cargo activities will be relocated from Gallows Bay in Christiansted to the Gordon A. Finch Molasses Pier located in Krause Lagoon on St. Croix.

The Port Authority is constructing a cargo terminal and making significant improvements to the dock at the Molasses Pier.  The project should take about 18 to 24 months to complete.  Construction of the new facility and the dock upgrades are expected to cost approximately $22 million.

VIPA received a grant in the amount of $10.4 million, funded via the BUILD Grant (Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development Grant), which was formerly the TIGER Grant (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery Grant).  Matching funds were appropriated by the Legislature of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
