The low lying bridge that joins twin towns Santa Elena and San Ignacio will be closed for the next five days to undergo needed repairs.

The bridge is usually motorists' one way access to enter San Ignacio from Santa Elena, while the Hawksworth bridge is usually the one way access out of San Ignacio into Santa Elena.

While the low lying bridge is being repaired, the one lane Hawksworth bridge will be used for both entry and exit. Motorists need to calculate extra time for trips in and out of San Ignacio for the next five days as the one way bridge always causes a back-flow of traffic.
