Sabana to Alajuelita route in San José closed for repairs
Last week, MOPT said in a press release that the road – which connects the western San José neighborhood of Sabana Sur to Alajuelita and Escazú — would be closed due to landslides caused by heavy rains. A representative of the Traffic Police’s information service confirmed Monday that the road has closed, and will remain closed for approximately two months.
The road has been repeatedly affected by landslides since it opened less than a year ago. In its press release, MOPT said that the National Highway Council (Conavi) intended to take permanent action to fix the problem of road blockages caused by the landslides. The highway was built by the Spanish construction company Autopistas del Sol, which also built and manages the new Caldera Highway, which runs between San José and Caldera on the Pacific coast.
The Caldera Highway also has been affected often by landslides since it opened earlier this year.
For up-to-date information on road closings throughout the country, call the Traffic Police hotline at 2222-9330.
