Rico’s TICO Bull – The Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes (MOPT) on Thursday made “an emergency intervention” on the Juan Pablo II bridge in La Uruca, after one of the expansion joints broke off, due to the normal deterioration (and lack of maintenance) of the road.

MOPT work crews on Thursday repaired the loose expansion joint or platina on the Juan Pablo II bridge. Sound famiiliar? Photo Casa Presidencial.

With the immediate work, it was possible to solve the problem and normalize the traffic on the Autopista General Cañas, the busiest road in the country, says the Casa Presidencial website.

In addition, the MOPT is expected to present in 15 days a structural proposal for the maintenance and general attention of the bridge and avoid situations like the one Thursday morning.

Keywords here are “present”, “proposal”, “maintennce” and “general attention”.

It took the MOPT, years, from 2009, to present, proposal, maintenance and general attention of the bridge over the Virilla river until a ‘real’ fix that was finished last year.

The Virilla bridge problem started with a loose expansion joint or platina in Spanish. Several major ‘interventions’ or fixes failed.

This is the first major ‘interventions’ or fix of the Juan Pablo II bridge of the loose expansion joint or platina.

Will history be repeated?
