Ferry service from Puntarenas to two points on the Nicoya peninsula is supposed to resume today.

Transportation officials said that seven days of intense labor allowed a contractor to remove 15,000 cubic meters of sand and debris from the dock where the ferries tie up.

That is in Barrio el Carmen in Puntarenas.

The ferry routes are to Paquera and to Playa Naranjo.

The Belgium firm of Jan de Nul did the work, and the cost was $297,000, paid by the Instituto Costarricense de Puertos del Pacífico. The División Marítimo Portuaria of the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes supervised the work.
