The work at Paso Ancho on the Circunvalación will require crews to close down the eastbound lane at night from now until March, said the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad.
That actually is good news because it means the project is coming along. This is another effort to eliminate a traffic circle on the key highway along the southern part of San José from La Uruca to San Pedro.
The result will be similar to what has been constructed in Y Griega with six lanes, three in each direction.
The section also is known as La Guacamaya because of the sprawling auto repair business that dominates the land the south.
So far the project has resulted in a series of weaving bypasses for motorists in both directions.
The Consejo Nacional de Vialidad said the closings will be from 10 a.m. to 5 a.m. each day but with an alternate route well marked.
When the job is done, only one circle will remain to be redone with another project. That is the Zapote circle. The circles created massive traffic jams each day.
