Bahamian firm Knowles Construction has received a contract for $2.68 million to reconstruct the Three Island Dock in North Eleuthera.

The dock project is part of a $10.1 million loan agreement between the Bahamas and the Caribbean Development Bank aimed at executing a large-scale Transport Sector Enhancement Project in the Bahamas outer islands, or “Family Islands.”

That agreement was signed in 2010, according to Works Minister Neko Grant.

The project will mean a new passenger terminal and dock master’s office, along with a solar lighting installation. Construction will be completed in nine months, Grant said.
