Workers place cobblestones on Coconut Drive

The placing of cobblestones on Coconut Drive from the Island Super Market traveling north to the area in front of TMM has commenced. Mr. Guillermo Rojas of the construction firm of Rojas, Schulz & Nelder is in charge of this project and informed the San Pedro Sun that, in addition to the placing of cobblestones, two speed bumps will be placed; one near the south entrance of Ramon's Village and the other in front of Steve and Becky's Cute Little Hotel. Placing of cobblestones began last Thursday and it is expected the project will be completed by the end of March, or earlier if possible. In order to achieve this, Mr. Rojas and his crew are working in two shifts; one during the day and another after normal hours so that the work is continuous and finishes in a timely fashion.

    The question in many people's minds at this time is the detour vehicles will use when the construction reaches the corner by Jerry's Crab Shack going towards WASA. Mr. Rojas stated he is consulting with Mayor Alberto Nuñez in regards to this situation. He explained that, unfortunately, nothing concrete could be confirmed regarding a temporary route at press time. 

    The cost of the upgrade of some 800 feet of Coconut Drive is estimated at $318,642.89, and is being funded by the Government of Belize. The contracting firm of Rojas, Schulz & Nelder was also awarded the contract for the construction of a concrete seawall at three locations in San Pedro Town.
