Travel Alert: All lanes on Route 27 lead to San José Sunday afternoon

July 18, 2015

Traffic on Route 27 that connects San José with the province of Puntarenas will only flow towards the capital on Sunday afternoon to keep traffic moving as travelers return from mid-year vacations along the Pacific coast.

Traffic Police and route administrator GlobalVía will close vehicle passage in the San José-Puntarenas direction starting 1 p.m. at Ciudad Colón.

Between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. highway lanes on the stretch between Ciudad Colón and Pozón de Orotina will only allow vehicle traffic towards San José.

GlobalVía will temporarily change all speed limit signals to 60 kilometers per hour and Traffic Police will set checkpoints along the road.

Motorists traveling to the Pacific region during those hours can use alternate routes including Route 3 through Atenas-Monte Aguacate-Orotina; Route 1 through Monte Cambronero or Route 239 at Ciudad Colón – Puriscal – Turrubares and then taking the exit to Pozón de Orotina.

Traffic Police advise vacationists in coastal areas to schedule their trips back to the Central Valley Sunday morning to avoid traffic jams.

To check traffic status on Route 27 or to request assistance on the road call GlobalVía’s control center at 2588-4040, bilingual staff are available.
