Rebuilding Interamericana Sur is a $3.6 million job

A year ago two lanes of the Interamericana Sur dropped into the jungle below, causing major traffic delays and detours.

Now a year later, the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad has restored the shelf road by constructing 10 terraces along the 100-meter  site and a wall that may be among the longest in the country.

The location is at Kilometer 34 on Cerro de la Muerte. The price is 1.9 billion colons or about $3.6 million. The job is supposed to be done in March.

The highway agency says that attention was paid to drainage, something that doomed the earlier version of the highway.

The highway is the major north-south route in the country.

Work crews are in the clouds pouring plenty of concrete so that the Interamerican Sur does not collapse again at Cerro de la Muerte.
