Road officials said that the stretch from the La República intersection in north San Jose to the Río Virilla would be open fully to traffic this morning at 5:30 o’clock.
Passage on the main highway had been limited because of the work removing exiting concrete and putting down asphalt. This is the main highway to the north and to the Caribbean coast. The work has been a major inconvenience to motorists.
Top officials including Pedro Castro, minister of Obras Pública y Transportes, were expected to be at the highway for the opening.
