The high season is also the asphalt season. The Consejo Nacional de Vialidad, the road agency, Monday listed nine more routes that would be resurfaced under an $8.3 million plan.
The roadways are in Alajuelita, San Sebastian, Paso Ancho, Zapote, Desamparados, Guadalupe,
Sabanilla, Tibás and San Francisco de Dos Ríos, all in the metro area. The agency already has begun work on Paseo Colón, the General Cañas highway, Avenida Secunda and the Bernardo Soto highway near Juan Santamaría airport.
Much of the work is being done at night. The goal is to finish the work before the rains return in April.
