QCOSTARICA – For the third consecutive night, the Ruta 32, which connects San José with Limón, was closed from 7 pm Friday and until 6 am this morning, Saturday.

Daytime driving conditions in the Zurqui sector of the Ruta 32

The Ministry of Public Works and Transportation (MOPT) reported that the preventive closure is being carried out due to the current state of rains, wind and fog in the mountainous area of the Zurqui, which the road runs through.

The MOPT specified that, eventually, it will reopen passage, if conditions allow it.

Since Wednesday afternoon, landslides have occurred in certain sections of the route, but no affected vehicles were reported.

In addition, the Fuerza Publica (National Police) reported several fallen trees near the Zurquí tunnel.
