Government toll booths will be closed for 42 hours from midday Thursday until 6 a.m. Saturday, the national highway agency said Monday.
The agency, the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad, said it expected greater than normal traffic these days because government workers will have left their jobs Wednesday evening and might be headed to the beaches and mountains.
Toll locations are on the Interamericana Norte at Juan Santamaría airport, at Naranjo and on the Florencio del Castillo route to Cartago. There also is another on Ruta 32, the Braulio Carrillo highway.
Some toll booths opened up to traffic over the weekend when the press of vehicles was great.
