Here are some current photos, just taken this morning, of the continued paving of the Caye Caulker Airstrip.
Paving in process down the airstrip; View from West to East
Barge with 9 large dumptrucks that deliver the hotmix from Belize City. I am told it takes the barge up to 6 hours to travel from BC to CC, so it leaves very late at night/early in the morning to arrive here at day break. At Western end of airstrip
Paver & Roller waiting for truckload of hotmix to hook up and start spreading a lane of asphalt - View from East to West

I appeared they had used all of this mornings hotmix by the time I got there and they were loading the trucks to take them back to BC. I do not know if they bring more than one barge of hotmix over/day. I will head over there later this afternoon (after the Bristish Open is over ;-P ) and see what's going on.
