Sergio Mazzucchelli, head of the UNOPS in Costa Rica, explained the project still requires the approval of the Comptroller’s office (Contraloría General de la República – CGR).

The Panamanian ambassador to Costa Rica, Elizabeth Serrano, said, “this project will enable a safer and more efficient traffic, and will also increase the economic benefit of both Sixaola and Guabito”.
The project has been in the planning stage for the last decade.

The new bridge will be four lanes, have a bicycle path and pedestrian walkway.

The bridge replace the current Baily structure, allowing passage of only one vehicle at a time.
