Quick fix, quicker unfix

Motorists along the Interamericana Norte at Cambronero might be interested to know the road is falling apart again.

This is the site where a chunk of road washed out Sept. 8. Workmen put in a one-lane bailey bridge and refilled the gap caused by heavy rains.

First they had to put in a new concrete culvert using meter-long sections of concrete pipe.

Area resident Loren B. Ford reports that five sections of the new culvert have been undermined by stream discharge and are falling towards the Río Jesús. There is no sign of Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes inspectors or workers form the company that made the emergency repairs, he said.
