St Thomas’ Cyril E. King airport is set for a major transformation.
United States Virgin Islands Governor Kenneth Mapp has announced that he will soon unveil the plans for a $230 million modernization of the island’s airport.
It’s a huge step for an airport that recovered quickly in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
“We have a very bright future ahead,” Mapp said during a visit with the League of Women Voters of the Virgin Islands. “But it will require hard work, real tough decisions and creating, establishing and maintaining very strong, vibrant, and positive relationships with our private partners.”
Mapp said the public would soon be invited to meetings with the Virgin Islands Port Authority to discussed the planned airport improvements.
The plans will likely be unveiled in June, according to Mapp.
