More pedestrian bridges in works to span Ruta 27

Highway officials said Friday that work is starting on three pedestrian bridges over the heavily traveled Ruta 27, the Caldera highway.

The bridges will be at the Forum office centers, at Balsa de Atenas and at Coyolar de Orotina.

The jobs are expected to be completed in January, said the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes.

The jobs are being done by the concession holder on the highway, Autopistas del Sol S.A. Each bridge will have ramps to comply with laws to provide access for the disabled, the ministry noted. A similar ramp already has been constructed at Parque la Sabana

The ministry also said that also planned are turnouts so that buses can discharge passengers safely. One will be at the Forum.
