In June 2008 the bridge was destroyed by Tropical Storm Arthur. A temporary bridge currently spans the river, but this bridge is low and is subject to submersion during heavy rains.
As of August 2012, the new Kendall bridge is in place and almost ready for use. It was manufactured and assembled in the United Kingdom, then dismantled and shipped to Belize. The new bridge is a steel truss bridge with a concrete deck. It spans 300 feet (91 meters).
