The Maho Bay improvement project is nearly complete, with newly constructed concrete pathways, an open air-pavilion, picnic tables, barbecues and an outhouse. In addition, the old existing pavilion has been improved with a new roof, a wooden deck and a new paint job.
The project, which will not include running water or electricity, was contracted by an off-island company at a cost of $429,000.
Parking improvements have also been made. On the west end of the beach several head-on parking spaces have been added and on the east end the construction of a fairly sizable parking lot is underway. Posts have been installed on the north side of the road to prevent parking on the ecologically fragile shoreline.
