By Patrick E. Jones [607-6777] – Repair work on the low-lying wooden bridge is on hold after the flooding of the Macal River in San Ignacio town.
Heavy rains since Wednesday have caused the level in the river to rise, inundating the bridge.
Motorists heading west are now using the historic Hawksworth Bridge to get into and out of San Ignacio town.
