A handful of construction companies united to form a consortium that was the only bidder on putting lane markings on the Costanera Sur between Dominical and Palmar Norte. The bid was opened Wednesday.
The consortium offered to do the job for 500 million colons, a bit short of $1 million.
The job includes putting down thermoplastic paint and installing 14,000 reflective lane markers. Expats have complained about the highway with new asphalt but with no lines.
The consortium is Consorcio Horizontes de Vías y Servicios de Centroamérica S. A.
