Starting at noon today, Paseo Colón and Avenida Segunda will be completely closed to all vehicular traffic. Routes adjacent will also be affected.

Many bus routes that run along and have stops on Paseo Colón and Avenida Segunda will be affected. Routes like the Santa Ana, Escazú, Alajuela, Heredia and Hatillos will all have their final/start stops relocated.

In addition, buses from Quepos, Palmares, San Ramón, Grecia, Naranjo, Orotina and Jacó will be using La Uruca route the La Coca Cola terminal. Guanacaste buses will be doing the same thing.

Best to say that, if you do not need to go into San José (unless to attend the parade), best not to until Sunday when the downtown core of San José gets back to normal.

Some 1.000 police and traffic officials will be on hand to control traffic and crowds for the largest parade of the year that kicks off at 6pm with a display of fireworks.
