Now that the bridge is almost complete, time to push for a new bridge to the Yucatan Penn. via the North of AC.
I like the Idea, and if we start talking about now, maybe the Gov. will pick up idea and start the process.
Think about all the advantages we would have.

C.S. Have you been to Xcalak by boat?

A few years back about a mile north of the Mayan cut that seperates Ambergris Caye from the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula the Mexican Government dynamited and dredged a hudge channel from the reef side through to the Bay of Chetumal.

Before the channel was made a bridge even smaller than the one that is being built at the cut now is all that would have been needed to access Mexico. Now with the channel in place two bridges would required and the second bridge would be a major undertaking.

I doubt that Mexico would have much desire to put this bridge in. If they did it would certainly make life easier on the north end of the Caye.

Hey Corona Steve - When is the interstate highway from Belize to the US scheduled for completion? Same time as the Walmart in San Pedro?

i think that this is highly illegal, they did it back in the second world war unknowingly. its illegal these days, so how did they do it?

wouldn't the blasting of the reef destroy the reef, hurt all of the marine creatures in the area, set the growth of the reef back millions of years,. if it is illegal which i'm assuming it is than how did they do it?

i'm not attacking you Tim Jeff i'd just like to know.

Let's crawl before we walk....there isn't even a deeded road easement past the Rocky Point area north yet. I.E. technically there is no "road" access to any property north of that point as no surveying has been done to establish the 40' easement and the GOB has not practiced their right of emminent domain to claim property for that purpose. A couple of subdivisions have been developed with their interior roads laid out but there is no road laid out to reach their borders and therefore the border of Mex. /Belize.

By the way I have some great aerial photos of that ship channel taken a couple months ago on a charter flight up to the area if anybody wants them.

A large channel was dug allowing passage into the Bay of Chetumal, some say for cruise ships. A large four lane highway is connecting Chetumal and Cancun as we type.

The reef and lower appendage of the Yucatan Pennisula belongs to Mexico. They can do whatever they please with their land and waters, no matter how destructive.

So now chetumal is going to be a "cruise capital" meaning that there are cruise ships going there, i have been to chetumal, and in my opinion its not a tourist destination, its an experience going there but theres not many tourists that go there, when my family and i went there the locals looked at us like we were from a different planet. why would they need a direct highway from chetumal to cancun there are other roads that go there.

Nobody used to go to Cancun forty years ago.

Quintana Roo has numerous attractions, the entire state is full of cenotes, amazing lagoons, Spanish forts, an awesome coast and a ton of history.
