Unofficial word from the Dept. of Works, all the equipment is in place and it looks like the airstrip will be done in about 2 months, but don't quote me on that, lots of factors coming into play, weather and funding being the main two.

The airstrip has been leveled, graded, and widened by the Belize government's Dpeartment of Works. The paving poriton is being awarded to a private contractor and has not begun yet. The airstrip as is, unpaved, is in better shape now than when it was paved and several private planes have landed on it, although Tropic Air and Maya Island will not resume service until it is paved.
The old asphalt from the airstrip was crushed and recycled, to make roads in the Puesta Del Sol area.

Thanks for the update. Sounds like it won't be long now.

Phase 2 of the airstrip project will be starting next week and is the paving. The airstrip will not be lengthened to the east, but has been widened by 5 feet. They expect to have the airstrip completed by October.
