Driving from downtown San Jose westbound towards La Sabana on Avenidas 2 and 4, be aware of the changes starting on Monday, June 24, on the turns at the Soda Tapia and  Colegio de Periodistas:

  • Only right turn at the Soda Tapia from Avenida 2. (Currently left or right turns permitted).
  • Only left (to the south) at the Colegio de Periodistas from Avenida 4. (Currently only right turns permitted).
  • The traffic light now at the Soda Tapia intersection will be moved one block south to the Colegio de Periodistas.

The change allows traffic on Avenida 6 to reach the cross street at the Sabana park instrad of having to make a right, one block north and then left, to the traffic lights.

This twist and turn that has forever existed is a source of major traffic congestion, especially with buses and big trucks having to negotiate tight turns.
