The project is divided into four phases, the upgrading of Loma Luz Boulevard, a new bridge crossing the Macal River, the construction of a new high embankment by-pass and the rehabilitation of Joseph Andrews Drive to the point where it re-connects with the Western Highway. The signing of the construction contract will take place on Thursday. Minister of Works Rene Montero will sign along with the successful bidder Cisco Construction Ltd. The first phase of the project involves the upgrading of Loma Luz Boulevard for one mile to its intersection with Trapiche Road. Work is expected to begin immediately.
