A flash flood caused major damage to the Southern Highway north of the Placencia Junction last night.

Traffic in this area will be interrupted for an extended period of time.

This means interruption of road deliveries in and out of the Peninsula and bus schedules.

We will try our best to bring you updates on this matter.

In the meantime, please monitor Love FM reports on the radio or on Patrick Jone’s Facebook page:

“A temporary diversion through a nearby banana farm has been created and very limited traffic is being allowed to pass the area where a large portion of the Southern Highway has been washed out. No small vehicles or passenger buses are being allowed. Only trucks and 4-wheel drive vehicles are being allowed on the temporary diversion.”

Work is continuing into the night to replace the washed out culvert along the Southern Highway in the area of the Placencia Junction and Mayan King. Estimation is that by midnight (Monday morning) the washed out area should be passable by motor vehicles.
