    I hope so too but that was DOW’s estimate so.... (looking for a fingers crossed emoji)
    Not only will it be a breeze to get to the lowrise and highrise areas but it’s going to really cut down on the traffic downtown as well.

    No other Caribbean nation has made such strides.

    We have driven the highway 2x to visit friends in San Nic and Savaneta. It is amazing and works well.
    The people that travel this stretch are very happy. (Many if not most of the resort workers live in these areas south of the airport)
    Also too the tourists that head to and from that area are happy.

    The next phase is Watty Vos.
    I have no clue on the progress, but I will find out.
    Pour a cup of coffee and watch the video if you can. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzlKfETLLfs

    I am trying not to be political......whether yellow, green, blue or whatever ...... I am just making observations as to how this American and spouse tourist appreciates how the infrastructure is progressing.

    My largest complaint is roadway markings....ya street signs and route numbers would be nice, but I am talking about the road markings....the painted lines, the arrows . There needs to be a couple of road crews whose sole purpose in keeping these things painted so that folks stay in their proper lanes .Especially but not limited to...the painted road markings in front of the Marriott near the roundabout, the intersection at Palm Bach rd Noord.


    Anyway, just some observations of this tourist.
