On November 4th, we reported that several intersections in Corozal Town connected to the Philip Goldson Highway and a large portion of the highway itself was opened for vehicular use after they were upgraded.

Under the major Highway project, the Government of Belize also requested that two other roads within Corozal Town be identified for refurbishing. Under that particular part of the project 4th and 6th are currently being cemented.

Both roads are heavily used by Corozaleños as they represent easier access to the center of town.

As you can see 50% of the roads have been upgraded and completion is expected by the time classes resume after the Christmas holidays.

Central Government allotted 4.4 million dollars to “concrete” one mile of the Philip Goldson Highway in Corozal starting from in front of the Social Security building right up to Santa Rita Hill.
