Waiting approval a proposed bridge from Sandy Ground, St. Martin to Anguilla will connect the two islands.
Toll fees for a bus: $30. one way, cars: $20. and donkey, goat or iguanas use bridge for free…

A better April Fool's Day joke would be that the airport would be fully open by the end of the second quarter! cloud

Scuba--I assume he's talking about the SXM airport, not the silly bridge.

I wasn't sure since he responded to the OP`s post that was about the bridge.

Here's a crazy factoid, the new Tappan Zee bridge that connects Westchester county NY to Rockland county NY was built in less time ( 3 miles long) than it has taken to rebuild this broken down airport!! And NOTHING gets done that fast in NY!!! Now that is very sad that we are still waiting for the arrival department to be completed!!!


Sand Gravity, got to love it!

Here is another factoid. The airport has been rebuilt while it has been fully(almost) operational. The new Mario Cuomo(correct name) bridge was built along side the old Tappan Zee, and the construction of one did not affect the operation of the other. Would have been easier to build a new airport in a different location, but we know there is no space for that. I hope you have all watched "Restoring A Princess" on Youtube. It has been quite the process.
