By Aaron Humes: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing (MIDH), in collaboration with the Road Safety Project 2, has announced that flood waters are still affecting some areas of the Philip Goldson Highway as a result of Thursday’s weather disturbance.
“Residual waters may continue to impact the national roadways throughout the next couple of days and motorists are strongly advised to reduce speed and exercise extreme caution when traversing areas where waters may be crossing the highway,” it said in a statement, mentioning Mile 28 (2 miles south of Crooked Tree Junction); Mile 31 (around the junction itself); Mile 35 a and Mile 39 – Mile 41 (near Rhaburn Ridge up to the entrance to Carmelita in Orange Walk).
“The MIDH’s Road Maintenance Units are deployed and are monitoring the situation for quick response if needed and remind users to respect legal speed limits and posted signs, and to refrain from driving under the influence. The patience and understanding of the public are greatly appreciated,” the release continues.
This part of the highway is part of a project that will see the rebuilding of the entire stretch from Mile 24.5 to Mile 92 at the northern border, including the Remate Bypass.
