There has been "official" discussion of this project since before I arrived in Cabarete in 2003.Aren't your maps 'Official'?
I thought that's why you posted them
good but very good news,
Knowing that President Luis Abinader in his speech today made mention of this cabarete community we can also see that the place where the teams that will start as important work as is the bypass that is through that community.
On the map you posted the one route looks like it goes through the Callejon. I don't see that happening.
There is a short video about the bypass on Facebook in the link above a few items down. The current clearing of land along the main highway is described as being the staging area for the equipment that will work on the Cabarete bypass. He mentions this was discussed in a recent public statement by President Luis Abinader.
All of this is just another confirmation of what I have heard from various other sources. I am still trying to find out the exact path of the bypass. Does it go through what is now La Cienaga which would cause a great deal of further disruption there, is it going to be a series of bridges as in a causeway, does it go south of the wetlands, etc...
And directly through the center of La Cienaga which would displace thousands (not to mention the cases of tear gas that would be needed). . I have asked for clarificationOn the map you posted the one route looks like it goes through the Callejon. I don't see that happening.
Now all that Cabarete needs for success is some large, maneuverable and reasonably priced parking lots.Awsome news! That project once completed, will be a huge relief for Cab. and the strip
There are car parks at each end of the main street. The one at the east end is large and easy to negotiate. 100 pesos. I agree about the car watchers.Now all that Cabarete needs for success is some large, maneuverable and reasonably priced parking lots.
And run off the knuckleheads who offer to "watch" your car along with 80 others parked at the curb.
Anyone ever observed these hustlers actually watching for anything other than the returning owners so they can bum rush them hand extended for the voluntary 'propina?
Oh yeah some lifeguard stations so we don't have to read about more drownings when we finally forget about the chicom virus and can actually enjoy the beaches for full weekends.
