A plan to fix the Autopista del Sol where the highway collapsed will take 10 weeks, the operators predicted in a plan presented last week to the Consejo Nacional de Concesiones.
The private operators proposed four stages for the work with the highway being closed during the final stage. They said they hoped that they could be finished sooner if the weather cooperated.
Among other jobs, the concession holder has to take out two bailey bridges that are now carrying traffic over a spot at Kilometer 47 where the highway slipped downhill. Also necessary, according to the plan, is improvements in the drainage.
The concession council has not given the final approval yet for the work to begin.
