Buckley’s Pass Update 11/13/18

It was never really a question of “if” but “when” a cut through from the Punta Gorda Isles Rim Canal to Alligator Creek would happen. Proposed 10 years ago to dramatically reduce out-time from PGI Bird Section to Charlotte Harbor the project has had its up’s and down’s but was never out.

Based on the most recent meeting a target date of November 2019 has been established for the 1446-foot-long canal opening.
