    This was put on DOW FB page on Sept. 26. It is not in English, but I just watched and saw the pictures and video. If you are on FB, you can go to the DOW page and scroll through. There is info on Watty Vos and other projects, but most of it is not in English.

    Will it be totally complete or will they still be working on the finishing touches?

    Landscaping and the like is still going to be taking place through December as far as I know, but the roadworks themselves are finished so that vehicles can start using the highway.

    I'm still going to go through town. When I leave the airport driving along the water passing Surfside (1st stop West Deck for lunch) then passing Seaport Marketplace, Renaissance & Crystal Casino) I know I'm home. There is going to be many roundabouts on Watty Vos. I'm not a fan of Roundabouts as many tourists don't know how to drive through them.

    Great news, but like Liz I'll probably still go through downtown when I get there, but heading back to the airport will be on Watty Vos.
