The Municipalidad de San José has begun work to replace the underground pipes at the Mercado Calle 16, which is better known as the Mercado Coca Cola. The location is at the well-known inter-city bus station.
The project will cost 80 million colons, about $160,000. It involves tearing up the floor of the market and adjacent areas. Workmen will be on the job from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. in order to avoid inconvenience to merchants and bus passengers, said the municipality.
