Playa Naranjo-Paquera road is in line to get asphalt

The national road agency says that the gravel road from Playa Naranjo to Paquera on the Nicoya peninsula will be asphalted.

The agency also said that a new contract has been issued to the Grecia construction firm Grupo Albosa for maintenance on the 26-kilometer (about 16-mile) stretch.

The job includes putting down 11 kilometers of gravel, which will become a base for the future asphalt job.

The asphalt job depends on legislative approval of a loan from the Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo. The project also includes drainage, inprovement of bridges and channeling of water, said the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad.

This roadway is a key link but it is usually in disrepair. Sometimes, mainly in wet weather, it cannot be traversed.
