Today about 2:30 PM, a dump truck got badly stuck right near Lazy Croc.

The concrete land next to it was in process of being poured and therefore not driveable, and there was no alternative passage for carts, nor motorbikes.

A second dump truck arrived and pulled the stuck one out. Both trucks dumped their loads of hard core in the slurry, and a grader slid the stuff around into place.

All in all, for what was a major mess, it took only an hour to straight out.

Traffic was lined up both north and south. One more adventure.

Motorists, please note that you should avoid the shoulders of puddles. Sometimes they look like a better elevation, but often they are like quicksand and down you go. Most of the puddles along the way are not terribly deep and you can safely drive right down the middle. The middle is firmer than the "shoulder" in most places.

truck extracted, hardcore about to be dumped in hole

You also have to watch out that you do not drive too close to the rebar that sticks out from the new pads, rebar is not very "Tire friendly"

After this morning's rain, I can only imagine what it looks like down close to the bridge! What a mess! We need those potholes filled quickly, or we'll all be just like the gravel truck!

The San Pedro Town Council updates on progress of paving road across the Boca del Rio Bridge.

Here are some pictures on the progress of the paving of the road on North, Ambergris Caye. The paving is already approaching Grand Caribe Belize. Some sections are being paved already like in front of Reef Village and the right off the north side of the bridge.

Has proper drainage been put in place or has the concrete been poured onto the quagmire?

Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

Could someone explain why there is a gap between the theatre and Solitude?

probably waiting for the water to go down a bit? looks like a lot of hardcore will be needed in that area.
