A legislative committee has approved and sent to the full body a proposal to link the Autopista Florencio del Castillo with the Zapote traffic circle. The 2.9 kilometer stretch would be from Curridabat.
The proposal also envisions widening the highway to six lanes for some 17.6 kilometers. The highway is the one that runs from Curridabat to Cartago.
The committee said that the way to finance the project was with a trust, a fideicomiso.
The stretch from Curridabat to Zapote would relieve pressure on the main highway through San Pedro and Curridabat.
