The Consejo Nacional de Concesiones (CNC) – National Council of Concessions – is currently waiting on a feasibility study by the private road builder MECO for the expansion of the Florencio del Castillo – the 21 km road that connects San Jose and Cartago, that would make the trip between Zapote (San Jose) and Tejar de El Guarco (Cartago) in less than 30 minutes.
