In the wee hours of Thursday morning, strong currents of the Parismina river washed away a large section of the Ruta 32, the major route connecting the Carribbean coast and the port of Limón and the Central Valley.

Given the magnitude of the damage and inclement weather, the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad (Conavi) says it will be four or five days before a temporary bridge can be erected.

Alternate routes, like through Turrialba is an option, but very slow due to the steep and narrow road and large volume of traffic, that inclues tractor trailers and buses.

The other three closed roads are the Ruta 142 in Unión de Tilarán towards the dam; Ruta 296 at the entrance of Tronadora towards río Chiquito, between Tilarán and San Carlos; and, Ruta 150 between Nicoya and Sámara.

Roads with partial closures or “paso regulado” is Ruta 1 or the Inteamericana norte, in Esparza; Ruta 2 or Interamericana sur, in the area of Cerro de la Muerte, near Vara del Roble; Ruta 14 in Golfito; and, the Zona de los Santos, between Juan and Copalchí.

Meanwhile in San José, the Circunvalación continues closed in both directions.
