Construction of the Canal Seco highway in Honduras, which links the country’s Atlantic and Pacific coasts, still has to be completed. Work on a 5km stretch of Section I of the route is the focus for some concern as it has slipped behind schedule. Construction of this stretch has been carried out by  a Mexican contractor, with the work being overseen by the consortium, Cinsa-Tecnisa-Inocsa. However plans now call for Section I of the project to be ready for traffic by mid-2019. The Canal Seco project is being handled in three main sections, with Section I stretching 49.6km and costing US$139.3 million. Section 1 connects Villa de San Antonio with El Quebrachal. Section II and Section III connect El Quebrachal with Goascoran, with these stretches due for completion shortly. This work for Section II and Section III is being carried out by the Brazilian contractor Queiroz Galvao.
