Fernando Trejos B., the mayor of Montes de Oca, has gone public with a complaint that the nation’s road agency has stalled for nearly two years in fixing up a roadway that is being eroded.
The roadway passes by part of the Universidad de Costa Rica, Universidad Latina and the municipality’s central business district of San Pedro.
Trejos said that repairs were promised for the time around Semana Santa in 2012. Municipal engineers presented a study in May showing that the Los Negritos drainage ditch was undercutting the roadway.
If the roadway collapses, the national route will be restricted to a single lane the mayor said. The mayor said municipal workers would help if the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad moved to fix the problem.
