QCOSTARICA – Driving around La Uruca, in the area of the Circunvalación, will be hectic (worse than normal) with the start of the soil testing and ground work for the construction of the north section of the Circunvalación.
The CONAVI says work started on Saturday and will continue until March 1, being carried out between 9:00am and 3:00pm, to have a minimal impact on morning and afternoon rush hours.
Drivers are asked to use caution when moving through the area.
The first phase of the north section of the Circunvalación will move traffic between La Uruca and Calle Blancos at the ruta 32 (the San José – Limón). The second phase will move traffic from Calle Blanos to Guadalupe (by Walmart). No time frame has been given for the start of construction of the second phase.
Once fully complete, traffic can move in a ring around the city of San José, reducing traffic congestion in the city centre.
