New section of SMB bypass made a public road

In today's cayCompass, they announced that the next section of the ETH bypass is now a public road and, at the same time, a portion of West Bay Road near Public Beach and the old Courtyard by Marriott hotel is now no longer a public highway.

compasscayman.com/caycompass/…

I presume that this means that, although not actually closed yet, it's only a matter of time that we won't be able to use that section of the road.

Has anyone on-island noticed any change yet?

New Hope...

1. Re: New section of SMB bypass made a public road

The entire Dart project is going to change the north part of Seven Mile Beach. When I was in Cayman last month, I was amazed how quickly the bypass road had been extended to West Bay. Usually things move very slowly in Grand Cayman.

I believe that the diversion of the road will be a very positive improvement for those who stay in condos in north SMB. It will cut down on traffic in front of those condos. It will eliminate the any road noise at night from cars going from Georgetown to West Bay. The noise level was never high as compared to most places and did not bother me, but I know some people who are sensitive any noise at night.
