QCOSTARICA – With a pandemic of a different kind, once again the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes (MOPT), is calling for drivers to stay off the national roads due to rain and poor visibility.

October brings the worst of the rainy season and with the current poor state of the condition of the roads, mostly due to lack of maintenance for the last couple of years and the current heavy rains, the advice coming for the entity responsible for maintaining the roads, is wise.

All major routes: Ruta 1 (Interamerican North), Ruta 2 (Interamerican South),  Ruta 27 (San Jose – Caldera) and Ruta 32 (San Jose – Limon), are experiencing temporary closures or “paso regulado” (restricted traffic) due to landslides, overflowing rivers, floods, falling rocks, washed away and sinking pavement.

“If you must inevitably drive, do so with great caution…,” warns the MOPT.
