    The first of these two contracts is for the construction of a concrete sea wall at three locations in San Pedro Town. These three locations include a seawall behind the Belize Electricity Limited plant, at the lagoon side by the old football field and in the vicinity of Compadres Bar. The total value of construction for these seawalls is $445,206.25.
