Over the next 9 months Dangriga Town will see an increase in activity with the paving of a number of streets as well as the installation of drains across the town. The work comes as a result of Phase 2 of the Dangriga Municipal Development Project which is well under way.

The work scope will include the paving of Gadsby Ramos Street and Trucking Boulevard from its intersection of Gadsby Ramos Street to George Price Drive. These highly trafficked streets will be paved with double chip and seal paving and at each intersections it will be triple chip and seal paving. Both streets will have drains, sidewalks, pedestrian crossings and speed bumps. Upon its completion it is expected that the drainage problem that plagues the area during the rainy season will be alleviated.

Funding for this project is being done by the World Bank through partnership with the Belize Social Investment Fund, commonly referred to as SIF, with counter-part funding coming from your Dangriga Town Council.

The estimated value of the project is BZE. $1,754,139.50. The contract was awarded to Castillo's Equipment Construction & Materials Limited from the Cayo District.
