It's Aruba...

It might be done by 2050.

They are presently working on it.

It is a very a big project that comes with delays and obstacles as well. Much to the frustration of the Aruban public and government. Mainly due to the number of road closures and inconveniences.

Expect completion to be late next year..

Yesterday it was announced that they will start construction of the 8 roundabouts that are part of the bypass. Including two overpasses which is unique for a small Caribbean island.
