QCOSTARICA – At 3:00pm Saturday, the National Highway Council (Consejo Nacional de Vialidad – CONAVI) confirmed the re-opening of the Interamericana Sur (Ruta 2).

“We managed to place the vertical signs and the problems we still have is with (road) marking, because you can not paint on wet surface,” said David Melendez, a CONAVI official.

The Policia de Tránsito (traffic police) will be constantly on scene to monitor and control traffic through the area, that for the most part will be restricted to one lane, as work crews continue road work through the weekend.

But, the road can be closed at any moment in the event of a landslide, explained Melendez.

The road collapsed last January 29, destroying about 100 meters of the road, some 10 kilometers north of Perez Zeledon. The Ruta 2 is one of two major routes that connects the Central Valley to Southern Zone. The other is the Costanera, from Puntarenas to Quepos and Dominical.
