Q COSTA RICA – Almost forty years from its inception, the Circunvlacaion, national route 39, is nearing its completion with the latest stage, the 4.1 kilometer stretch between La Uruca and Tibás (ruta 32 intersection), officially opened by the current government.

The Circunvalación Norte, as the project is called, includes the construction of the longest viaduct in the country and the first two three-level intersections that will function as part of Costa Rica’s road infrastructure.

The last stage of the project, between Tibás and Calle Blancos, currently 58% complete, is expected for April 2024. According to MOPT officials, an expropriation, which is in the last stages of resolution, is the setback for the work to continue to completion.
