The construction started in 2010 and was successfully completed in a period of 24 months by CISCO Constructions in August 2012, at a cost of 11.9 million Belize dollars. The bridge has a length of 0.13 kilometers, with maps coordinates of 16°48’55.08" latitude and -88°22’41.88" longitude.[1] The Bridge stands approximately 10 feet higher than the old Ferro-concrete structure and consists of a "90 meter span steel truss supporting reinforcement concrete deck founded on driven piles", much better than the one before.
