#461475 - 04/02/13 04:42 PM SPTC Official Announcement Bridge Closure
Chris Offline
If someone from the San Pedro Town Council could post official information regarding the anticipate bridge closing it would be much appreciated.

If possible, the closing date, estimated opening date and, most important, will a pedestrian walkway be left open during the closure of the rest of the bridge.

Thanks!

When I called the SPTB last week I was referred to Marion. He said the bridge would be closed 'after the parts arrive from England.' He estimated that they would not be before the week of the 8th. He thought it would be a total closure. I would urge someone else call today and ask for an update.

Um, can't 1/2 the bridge be repaired at a time. Don't the panels drop in and are welded to the tracks? I know I'm whining but I'm sort of fond of the bridge(like twice a day)...

The Sir Barry Bowen Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic completely when work is carried out on the bridge. At this particular moment, we cannot provide the community with an exact date as to when this will happen as the parts are slated to arrive in Belize this week but have to be cleared through customs and the paint that is used has to be on the island before any work is done. The mayor understands the use and concerns of residents and will provide an exact date when all that is need is on the island and the workmen are ready to begin with enough time to make plans ahead. The pedestrian walkway will be the only means available across the Boca del Rio. As soon as we have a date, it will be announced and posted on the social media. Thanks

Just wondering if the Council has been given an estimate of the time for the repairs to be made and the bridge to be closed...Thank You

Since the foot bridge will be open, I'd say this would be a good time for some enterprising young men to have a fleet of golf carts on each side of the bridge. Some valet parking and security for the carts. Some "bellman" types to carry your bags to and fro. For those businesses or properties just on either side, rope off an area and charge for parking spaces.

Make the best of a not so desirable situation, San Pedranos!!

That the walkway will be open during the bridge repairs is great news.
