It had been expected complete by this morning, but the rains of the weekend delayed the work on the installation of the two Bailey bridges on the Circunvalación.

CONAVI officials say that the work will be complete by noon today, as the metal structures have been installed and what is now required is the on/off ramps.

Traffic on the Circunvalación was heavy in both directions this morning, mainly due that many expected the road to be open and given it follows pay day. Costa Ricans normally take out their cars a couple of days before and after pay days, the 15th an 30th of each month..

The Policia de Tránsito is still on site and will remain for days, maintaining the flow of traffic, according to German Marín, director of the traffic police force.
