Bridge Work Slows Beachgoers in N. Pacific

December 21, 2007

Vacationers traveling to north Pacific beach communities such as Papagayo or Playas del Coco might have noticed since last week that passing between the cantons of Carrillo and Liberia could take up to two hours longer than usual. That’s because of the construction work on a bridge over the River Tempisque at the community of Guardia on the way to Playas del Coco from Liberia, the daily La Nación reported.

Workers are fixing a hole that appeared in the 20-year-old bridge when one of its support blocks gave way from wear and tear by overloaded vehicles. To fix it, they are building a new support beam almost 50 meters long and reinforcing the system that holds the bridge’s arches in place.

Motorists can take an alternate route, crossing an old bridge next to the one under repair, although its narrow passage allows only one vehicle at a time.
