Three-level vehicular passage in La Uruca will begin construction this month

Expect lane closures in the area, adding to the congestion, for the rest of the year

Starting sometime this month (February), the construction order for the three-level crossing will be given to begin at La Uruca, at the intersection of the Circunvalación road entrance, at the junction where the Burger King restaurant was located.

This work will occupy a permanent lane closure, which will cause even more congestion in the area throughout 2020.

“This work is part of the North Circunvalación contract and is a transcendental work. The start order will be given at the beginning of February and this will represent an important step restriction in the area, since only two lanes will be enabled (one per direction),” explained the Minister of Public Works and Transportation (MOPT), Rodolfo Méndez Mata.

The work consists of building a three-level passage, which will allow the fluid passage between La Uruca, theCircunvalación, the autopista General Cañas and Ruta 27 to Caldera.

“We are already making all the preparations for the start of the works. It is one of the most important for the country … We will try to make the best traffic management with the support of the Traffic Police,” added the Minister.
