The Friday flooding of the autopista General Cañas in the area of Los Arcos, in Heredia (east of Plaza Real Cariari), didn’t cause any serious damage to the infrastructure, according to the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes (MOPT).

David Melendez, director of Emergency Preparedness and Disaster at the MOPT, said the overflow of the culvert from the extreme rainfall Friday afternoon did not cause any damage to the infrastructure built in June last year after a sinkhole shut down the autopista.

Despite the postings on the social media like Facebook that “the movements of the US soccer team” caused the tremendous congestion on the country’s busiest highway, it was in fact due to a week’s rainfall coming down in a matter of hours.

Melendez confirmed that MOPT engineers made a thorough inspection on Saturday and confirmed that Friday’s flooding was caused by nearby sewers that could not handle the extremely large volume of water.
