Braulio Carrillo highway to Caribbean remains open

July 9, 2010

 

Costa Rica’s Caribbean-bound Route 32 Braulio Carrillo highway will remain open Thursday, contrary to earlier reports, the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) said Wednesday.
 
Authorities had announced Monday the roadway would be closed Wednesday and Thursday morning between kilometers 20 and 28 so that the National Geological Institute could perform studies.
 
The geological studies have been postponed and the highway will be open all day on Thursday. A new date for the studies has not been announced.
 
MOPT also announced on Wednesday that 15 additional transit police will patrol the new Caldera highway the coming weekend, when many motorists will be returning from vacation. The officers will be located between Caldera, a port on the central Pacific coast, and Escazú, a suburb southwest of San José.
 
After next week, the police will continue to monitor that road on Saturdays and Sundays for possible landslides and determine if it is necessary to close certain sections of the highway. The inspectors will be paying close attention to the stretch between Atenas, a coffee town in the Central Valley west of San José, and Orotina, a town just inland from the Central Pacific coast.
