It's not proposed it's finished. It's now cobbled all the way from Town to Victoria House.

Oh. I guess I had it confused with another proposed road to divert some of the traffic from the highly congested road by the airport, and give residents of the lagoon area (not sure of the name) a shorter commute. Does that sound familar to anyone? I wish I could remember the details.

The road you are thinking of runs along the west side of the airstrip and around the south end to connect in San Pablo. It is (was) under construction but last word was it was delayed waiting for OKs from Belmopan.
