Government invests more than $500,000
to repair 2 km of highway


By the A.M. Costa Rica staff


The Ministry of Transport started with the repairs of the 2 km road that is between the Catholic Church of Tibas and the bridge over the River Virilla with an investment of ¢350 million colones (about $585,235), financed by the National Council of Roads, (COSEVI).
 


According to the ministry, road work will be done every day from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the next 6 weeks. 
 
"It has started with the removal of the surface of the current asphalt, then a new asphalt surface will be placed and the corresponding demarcation paint of the road will be made," said the council on its statement.



The new bridge over the Virilla River, which was reported by A.M. Costa Rica on March 15, is a three-lane bridge and will cost $22.36 million financed by a loan from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration.

The project is managed by the United Nations Office for Project Services and its construction is in charge of three companies: Meco, Puentes Infraestructuras and Puentes Group.

Alejandro Rossi, director of the United Nations Office for Project Services in Costa Rica, said, "Now begins a stage of administration and supervision of this construction to assure the government that the results are met in time, with quality and in accordance with the expected outcomes."

Rossi said this is a complex construction that will be built using the standard techniques for lengthy bridges like this one. Construction starts with the bases and then successive sections of the bridge are built on each side, maintaining the balance of the structure.

The new bridge will be built parallel to the current bridge, and there would be no interruption in the transit of vehicles. During the first phase of construction, however, night and partial closings will have to be made.

Rodolfo Mendez, Minister of Transport, said the issue of suicidal plunges from the current bridge was taken into consideration, and things are being put into place that will reduce the possibility that people will be able to use the structure for this purpose.

Minister Mata said the new bridge will release the pressure on the current traffic and will give traffic more fluidity for drivers who must travel on route # 32, between Tibás in San José, and Guapiles in Limón.

"We are looking for alternatives for the Braulio Carrillo Park sector, in order to benefit those who live in Sarapiquí and Limón, but we are going step by step," said Minister Mendez.

According to the ministry, the characteristics of the bridge are:

-Three lanes of 3.60 meters wide each, with sidewalks 1.5 meters wide, separated from the road with concrete barriers.

- 285 meters in length.

- The parallel road will also be extended by 285 meters at each end of the bridge.

- Construction should not interrupt traffic.

- Two bases 50 meters high will be built to support the structure and the slopes will be reinforced.

The bridge should be finished in 18-months
