The work to repair the bridge over the Virilla river on the autopista General Cañas, known popularly as the “platina bridge” that will last 13 months and cost ¢4.5 billion colones, gets underway on Wednesday.

Yesterday the Ministro de Transportes, Pedro Castro, announced the choice of the CODOCSA company to carry out the work.

The miniter said that the first 12 months of the work will be under the bridge, shoring up the infrastructure and will not affect traffic on the country’s busiest highway, with more than 90.000 vehicles daily.

The last month  – the 13th – the work will disrupt traffic to lay a new concrete slab over the span of the brige.

The Ministerio de Obras Publicas y Transportes (MOPT) has attempted to repair the ailing structure on several occasions over the last five years, failing each time.

The last repair has left drivers to deal with a crumbling road surface and exposed metal grate. Monday night, work crews patched up the breaks in the concrete.
