Public Restrooms in Cruz Bay to Get Needed Face-Lift

June 29, 2006 – Renovations to the public restrooms in Cruz Bay are due to start after the July 4th Celebration concludes.
A release Thursday said the Cruz Bay renovations were part of the government's effort to provide improved facilities for visitors and residents. Earlier this week, Government House announced that public restrooms on St. Thomas were also going to be spruced up.
Funding in the amount of $25,000 was secured from the Community Development Block Grant under the Department of Planning and Natural Resources.
Ira Wade, Public Works deputy commissioner for St. John, said the survey of the Cruz Bay bathrooms has been completed, as well as the estimates and requisitions.
Included in the work to be done, Wade said, is the installation of new automated commodes, urinals and sinks. All of the doors will be replaced, and stalls will be rebuilt to include one handicapped-accessible stall in both the men's and women's bathrooms. Ramps for the physically challenged are already in place.
The work is expected to take about 90 days. The release did not indicate whether alternate facilities would be available while work is underway.
