The closure is to permit the use of a crane that allows the transfer of large and heavy pieces of the bridge used on the project.

Once complete, the new two-lane bridge will be 133 meters in length and will complement the existing two-lane bridge, widening passage over the river for the 33,000 vehicles daily to 4 lanes once the project is complete.

The work began in May 2017 has an approximate cost of US$ 8.5 million, equivalent to ¢ 4.9 billion colones, and is financed through the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).
