Highway to the Caribbean reopens
At 10 a.m. on Friday, authorities from the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) reopened a blocked section of Route 32, the highway connecting San José with the province of Limón.
The road had been closed since Wednesday after a landslide dumped 6,400 square meters of debris on the road, due to heavy rains.
MOPT engineers reopened the highway after monitoring the mountain, but they recommended drivers remain alert for possible falling debris.
