Hawkesworth Bridge San Ignacio Belize 2017
Suspended high above the Macal River, the Hawksworth Bridge is the only drivable suspension bridge in Belize. This suspension bridge reminded me of my beloved Golden Gate Bridge. To the locals, it is as special connecting Santa Elena to San Ignacio. The total length of the bridge is 480 feet and the main span is 280 feet, with an additional 100 feet on each side.
It was a great day for the people of British Honduras as the bridge was the final link connecting San Ignacio and Belize City
