Mass Congestion Through the Circunvalación This Week!

Two of the four temporary bridges have been removed over the Maria Aguilar river. Traffic through the area is moving one lane in each direction.

Traffic in and around the Circunvalación was terrible on Sunday, in particular through Hatillo 8 where the bridge repairs over the Maria Aguilar continue. And today and the rest of the week it will be a nightmare.

Work crews on Sunday removed the second of the four Bailey bridges, leaving through traffic on two Baileys until the permanent bridge is erected. And then it starts all over again for the other side.

Germán Marín, the director of the Traffic Police (Policía de Tránsito) is asking for drivers to avoid the area if at all possible, to keep the congestion at a minimum during this week.

Tránsitos will be on site to control traffic flow, but, massive congestion will be unavoidable.

Alternate routes like the Sabana Sur, Calle 42 and the east side of the La Sabana park are expected to be heavier than normal.  For drivers moving from east to west they can use the road between Alajuelita and Escazú for example.

Until the permanent six lane bridge is completed  – expected within the next 2-3 weeks – traffic will move through the area – between Pavas and Hatillo 8 – one lane in each direction.
