Landslide Forces Total Closure of Ruta 32

A landslide Tuesday morning on the Ruta 32 in the area of Quebrada González, forced a total closure between San Jose and Guapiles.

According to the latest bulletin by the Ministro de Obras Publicas y Transportes (MOPT), the total closure will continue today Wednesday. The MOPT said adverse climate conditions impeded crews in the cleanup.

“The route will not open today, given the adverse weather conditions, which prevent the crews from working with minimum security,” said the MOPT Tuesday afternoon.

The MOPT expects to have the road re-opened Wednesday, but would not specify when exactly.
