Bridge repairs complicate travel between La Aurora and Barreal in Heredia

August 27, 2010

 

The bridge normally serving the eastbound flow of traffic between La Aurora and the center of Barreal in Heredia is closed for repairs during the beginning of this week. The National Roadway Council (CONAVI) announced Monday morning that the structural bases of the bridge have been undercut by excess runoff due to recent heavy rains, making repairs necessary.
        
CONAVI expects completion of the project by Tuesday evening. It warns, however, that repair work may continue until Wednesday morning.  
        
The parallel cement bridge serving westbound traffic remains open. Traffic Police are overseeing its use to alternately allow the passage of traffic in both directions. Nevertheless, the closure is causing notable congestion.
        
Those wishing to avoid the congestion can detour to the north, crossing between Barreal and La Aurora at any one of multiple alternatives.
