A government committee has approved an access plan for Alajuela’s City Mall.
The access will be into Ruta 153.
The construction project has been controversial because the location is near the Hospital de Alajuela, and neighbors have been objecting over what they see will be high traffic.
The action was by the little-known Comisión de Carreteras de Accesos Restringidos of the Minsterio de Obras Públicas y Transportes.
Developers now have six months to construct the roadways that will make the connection. The road ministry said the job is about $8 million.
