WASHINGTON, DC - Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett announced an important Transportation and Infrastructure Grant for improvements to the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport on St. Croix.
“I am proud to announce that the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport on St. Croix will receive an important Rehabilitate Apron Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Department announced that the Virgin Islands Port Authority would receive a $2,270,311.00 award. The airport apron is the area where aircraft are parked, unloaded or loaded, refueled, or boarded. This grant will fund the rehabilitation of 13,444 square yards of the existing apron to maintain the structural integrity of the pavement at this important airport”, said Plaskett.

“This grant is significant to the residents of the U.S. Virgin Islands and St. Croix because it allows the USVI Port Authority to address the existing challenges of the Rohlsen Airport as well as supporting our argument to the airline industry of the viability and commercial attraction of St. Croix as an aviation hub," added the Congresswoman.
