Water leak throttles traffic for three days

Traffic was so bad Friday evening in San José that local radio stations were broadcasting a warning to motorists to stay out of the center of the city.

Some motorists spent two to three hours in a major traffic jam that was caused, in part, by the closing of Avenida 7 so water company workers could fix a leak. This has been a long-time effort, and the problem reached a peak Thursday morning when a backhoe operator snagged underground high tension lines. The major water leak took backseat to restoring power to much of the city.

Fridays always are a time of heavy traffic even without the additional problems caused by the Instituto Costarricense de Acueductos y Alcantarillados. The road closing resonated for blocks and blocks with homebound motorists struggling against buses and trucks. The leak finally was fixed Saturday, so says the water company.
