This is why the road is being reduced to one lane

The spot on the General Cañas highway where the traffic lanes have been undermined is not the only one.

A bridge over the Río Torres that carries Ruta 218 from San José to Guadalupe also has problems. The Consejo Nacional de Vialidad said that workers would need 14 to 18 days to remedy the problem. Until then, they said, the route will be down to one lane because one of the lanes is seriously undermined.

Workers are expected to put in steel reinforcements that will take the place of corroded beams that are there now.
