Due to flooding

The temporary wooden bridge on the Macal River was completely submerge in water

The temporary wooden bridge that connects San Ignacio to Santa Elena continued to be temporarily closed Tuesday due to flooding of the Macal River. Incessant rains over the past few days and a rising Macal River has resulted in the low lying bridge being closed to vehicular traffic. Personnel from the Traffic Department are now on duty managing traffic across the Hawkesworth Bridge and along the George Price Highway. As a result, traffic has been diverted from the wooden bridge to the Hawkesworth suspension bridge that also connects San Ignacio to Santa
