We just got back from St. Martin and Front street was closed to all vehicular traffic.
The street surface was non-existant and was all sand. Most of the sidewalk was torn up and they are installing new brick paver sidewalks. Lot's of jack hammering going on.
We were told by local merchants that they expected to be completed by December - in time for the winter season. Being most locals operate on "island time", I was just wondering what winter season they were talking about 2004 or 2005, or even 2006?
We are going back in mid-December this year and I am curious to see how much did, or did not, get completed. My money says it won't be done by December 2004. January or February 2005 is an outside possibility.
By the way - the on-going construction did not hinder us in any way from walking around town or shopping. The street is too noarrow for vehicular traffic - so with it being closed, it made walking a bit easier - but a bit dirtier and dusty.
