PARK TO CLOSE, EXPAND LIND POINT OVERLOOK

Nov. 5, 2002 – The V.I. National Park will close the Lind Point overlook on North Shore Road for about four days starting Nov. 18, according to a news release from maintenance chief John Javor.
The park plans to expand the area and build a stone retaining wall at the popular overlook.
The Federal Highway Administration, working with the park, hired Caribbean Drilling Services to test the soil before it begins reconstructing the overlook. Javor said the test consists of drilling holes to determine the soil strata of the area.
This project is part of the improvements being made along North Shore Road that the park will complete this fall.
Projects are also planned for Cinnamon Bay, Penn Point, Maho Bay and Hawksnest Bay.
