Once again the autopista General Cañas is a headache for drivers. Starting last night and until May 31 the eastbound lanes (Alajuela to San José) between La Castella and Juan Pablo II bridges will be closed to all traffic between 10pm and 5am.
The closure caught many surprise last night
The Consejo Nacional de Viabilidad (CONAVI) and the Policía de Tránsito (traffic police) will barracade all access to the autopista.
The closure is to allow crews to trim and cut the trees along the side of the road.
If using the autopista at night – from the airport or Cariari, for instance – to San José keep in mind the closure.
