By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MIDH) has issued a public notice cautioning boaters to exercise caution when passing by Haulover Bridge.

The Ministry of Infrastructure, Development and Housing said its construction contractor for the Haulover Bridge Replacement Project, M&M Engineering Consultants Limited, continues working on the construction of the new Haulover Bridge and boaters passing near the construction area need to be very cautious.

“’No wake’ signs will be erected to caution boaters to go slow when approaching the Haulover Bridge from both sides,” the MIDH said in a public notice posted on social media.

“Boaters are advised to exercise extreme caution when passing the construction zone and respect the construction space.”

The MIDH said that one permanent mid-river foundation pier has been constructed and work is underway on a second foundation pier within the Belize River just downstream of the Haulover Bridge.

“Heavy lifting barges are being used as platforms for heavy equipment used in the driving of piles and the construction of the reinforced concrete piers,” the MIDH said.

“Overhead works, such as the installation of bridge beams and the construction of the concrete deck are expected to commence shortly as well. Even though equipment in the river will be mostly stationary, at times there may be movement while ferrying materials, smaller equipment, and personnel.”

The Ministry said it thanks the public for its cooperation in respecting and abiding by the safety precautions.
