Tuesday. 3 Nov. Lots of concrete, so will note the places that are still unpaved and need extra caution .......
By Capricorn/Abby-Hair-Braid - concrete coming from the north ends here and from the pavement you enter a large and relatively deep puddle. Don't use the "shoulders" - there is hardcore on the bottom of the main part of the puddle so you won't get stuck. Today water did not come up to floorboards so you can make it through if you go slowly.
More concrete starts again somewhere around El Pescador and goes south more or less to Grand Caribe. Maybe there is a break in that length but can't fully recall. Just south of Grande Caribe the concrete ends and there is a nasty patch of slurry. Hardcore was being dumped in this area this morning.
Traveling south through Tres Cocos the road is very rutty and annoying, has some puddles but nothing dangerous.
Nasty patch of puddles on the one-lane stretch where you are allowed to drive that goes along Reef Village. Hardcore has been put in these areas but there is still a considerable amount of water. Concrete is going in there on one lane now, so soon this should be quite passable.
Very messy between Solitude and concrete run-up to bridge.
Lots of progress, but still not a ride you want to take if you don't have to do so.
Heading north from Belizean Shores (where the concrete project stops) there is a very bad patch of road behind Seascape, and then again as you round the bend north of Blue Dolphin. Road is not too bad from there on ..... you end up on the beach just after Journey's End and that area is fine. Traveling further north on the beach by Coral Divers the high tide makes for a very narrow track and a little salt water on your cart or bike. Mata Grande road is not nice, especially in the patch between Los Encantos and the Grocery. Farther than that I did not even try to go and wouldn't expect to find it passable.
The worst spot right now is right in front of Abby-Hair-Braid-Trinket place (Capricorn area). There is a new little diversion on the west side of the big puddle that is actually worse than going through the puddle. Recommend traveling straight through the water, just to the west of the center. It's relatively flat and not terribly deep in that little strip. When coming north, if you choose to go through the puddle, beware that as you come back up onto the pavement there are some rebar ends sticking out of the cement. Aim carefully so they don't jam into your tires. Generally speaking the road is coming along well and even at Reef Village the road is now passable.
The road plan stops short of actually being on this end of the island and for all of us living North of Belizean Shores it's the same mud slide. If you look at a map there is little to celebrate, three fourths of the island is inaccessible by road. I drove from Journeys End to Canary Cove yesterday and it's mud and lagoon as it has always been. You guys have been eating the propaganda the Town Board has been feeding you.Your North Road is on the South end of the island and all the real-estate up here is still only accessible by boat if there has been rain and we've had a lot of rain.
