The Government of Belize through the Ministry of Works has recently signed two contracts to carry out rehabilitation works on the George Price Highway. These works will be carried out between Belmopan City and Blackman Eddy.  The works entail the construction of a new bridge in Roaring Creek as well as rehabilitation works along the route which includes the replacement of culverts, construction of new drains, paving, signage, and earthworks. The estimated duration of works in this area is 3 months.

Because these works will require the use of heavy construction equipment, the public is urged to exercise extreme caution when approaching and driving between Roaring Creek and Blackman Eddy Villages, specifically miles 51 and 55. Commuters are asked to allow extra time to reach their destinations.

The George Price Highway Rehabilitation is being funded through a loan from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Grant funding from the European Union - Caribbean Investment Facility (CIF), and the Government of Belize.
