Inter-American, Irazú and other roads cut off for landslide clean-up
Costa Rica road authorities yesterday closed off several major roads, including the Inter-American Highway at two points by the southern area of Pérez Zeledón, to clean up landslides that occurred over the rainy weekend, the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) said.
Landslides made passage impossible at Kilometer 111, by El Jardín, and Kilometer 106, near División, according to a MOPT press release.
The authorities also cut off Route 219 to Irazú Volcano, east of San José, and National Route 301 between Acosta and Parrita, on the central Pacific.
Traffic has been slowed for cleanups on the Costanera Sur coastal road at Kilometer 11, between Parrita and Quepos, and the road from Orotina to Jacó.
