Repair Christiansted National Historic Site Wharf Bulkhead

The National Park Service (NPS) proposes to repair the Christiansted National Historic Wharf Bulkhead at Christiansted National Historic Site (Christiansted NHS), St.Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. The purpose of the project is to help ensure the health and safety of the public and improve the visitor experience while preserving the setting of the Christiansted NHS. This project is needed at this time in order to prevent damage from more frequent and more powerful seasonal hurricanes and to mitigate and remediate the effects of historic and continuing storm damage to the park waterfront cultural landscape and visitor and vessel uses. The concept will be designed to make the smallest possible imprint on the historic maritime landscape. The project will stabilize the historic waterfront and protect Christiansted NHS historic maritime landscape and associated historic buildings from the imminent threat of failure of the bulkhead and associated landward migration of the shoreline due to erosion.
