The Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment, Commerce andIndustry informs the general public that a 40 ft. slab of the deck of theWacamayo Bridge, in the Mountain Pine Ridge Area, has been washed off dueto floods over the weekend. The bridge is found on the Chiquibul Road,spanning the Macal River and linking Mountain Pine Ridge and theChiquibul Forest Reserve. As a result, access to Caracol is difficult atthis moment. Larger 4-wheel drive vehicles can cross but it is notadvisable. Repairs to the bridge are already underway.
The public will be kept abreast of the progress of the repairs andefforts at mitigating similar incidences.
