Q COSTA RICA – Take note that the “platina” bridge will be closed from 3:00pm Saturday to 5:00am Monday, to repair a sinking in the access to the bridge, which according to the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MOPT) was foreseen.

The sinking is at the entrance of the three lanes of the Alajuela – San Jose direction put into service last month.

The closure will allow crews to make the necessary adjustments, while work continues on the San Jose – Alajuela half of the bridge that should be ready in the coming weeks.

The Consejo Nacional de Vialidad (Conavi) assures that ‘the defect was anticipated”, this due to the opening of the bridge prior to the completion of the work.

The completion of the reconstruction of the bridge is months overdue. The work was originally to have been finished by February 28, pushed back to March, April and May.

To ease traffic congestion due to the construction, the three lanes of the Alajuela – San Jose direction were opened last month, traffic officials allowing priority traffic on two lanes at one time, that is in the mornings and mid-day the priority is for San Jose bound traffic, in the late afternoon for Alajuela.

Once complete, the six lane bridge will continuously move traffic on three lanes in each direction.

For this weekend, drivers moving between Alajuela and San Jose can use the alternate routes of the Ruta 27 or the Heredia – Jardines del Recuerdo by way of La Uruca.
