Proposed ‘Sun Route’ on Horizon

April 2, 2004

IN recent months, the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) has proposed developing two new road projects that would bring Guanacaste closer than ever before to the rest of the country, the daily La Nación reported.

The proposed projects are “La Ruta del Sol” (The Sun Route), which would run parallel to the north Pacific shore from Paquera in Puntarenas to La Cruz in Guanacaste, and expanding the

Inter-American Highway

from two to four lanes from the crossing to Port Caldera to the TempisqueRiver detour.

MOPT is conducting a public bidding process to name the companies in charge of drafting the plans for the projects. Public Works and Transport Minister Javier Chaves said work on these projects could begin as early as late 2006. No word yet on the estimated costs of each project.
