Hopkins road is coming along,,, still gravel. For the most part about 2 feet higher, way wider and much smoother. BEL was moving power poles further off the road allowance. The drains and culverts are looking great for big run off. Here is a pic of a June 1, Sunday morning Cancer Fund Raising Run.

Looks like they may be struggling with the widening of the four small bridges. More notably with driving the precast concrete piles. Some went in like a nail in soft wood and some look like they were pounding into Bullet Trees??

Really nice to drive on now, except for the dust.
Not sure if they can lay down the tar during the wet season or just hold the subgrade together until it dries up some.

Thanks for sharing. The road looks 100% better than when we were there in January/February! At least the road level is closer to the hump of the bridge. I don't know why Belize is fascinated with narrow bridges. I guess it is "do what we can afford" mindset but the ones on the Hummingbird Highway always make me dread driving it the most. I actually count them down as I progress so I can breathe a sigh of relief once I am over the last one.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but weren't most of the narrow Hummingbird Highway bridges formally narrow gauge British rail bridges?

I want to correct the spelling of a name I used in a post on this thread regarding Jaguar Reef Lodge. The founder/owner's name is Bruce Forrester. Dumb mistake on my part. I apologize for this error. (Because this is an old thread, I am not able to correct my error in the original post.)

Hi Len! This is off topic.

I need your help. A couple on weeks ago, I was able to post, but have forgotten the process. Please give me specific directions about posting a question. I am living in Dangriga & learned by word of mouth that there is an expat community in Hopkins. I'd like the name of someone in the group so I can join it.

Regards,
Joan

Great info! Now, if a moderator will repost it from "real estate" to "How to use the forum."
