On March 1, contractors began the repair and replacement of the wharf bulkhead located between King Christian Hotel and Fort Christiansvaern at the Christiansted National Historic Site. This project will be replacing approximately 700 linear feet of the bulkhead and adjacent apron. Most of the construction activity will take place between 9 am and 5 pm. The project is scheduled to be completed by February 2022.
