If the weekend is coming, highway officials must be closing another bridge or key road. This weekend, the work will be on the Juan Pablo II bridge in La Uruca.
To put it gently, the concrete bridge deck is falling apart, and the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad is going to apply more patches.
The westbound lane on the bridge will be closed from 10 p.m. tonight until 5 a.m. Monday.
Traffic will be a mess even though the detour is short and via the traffic circle under the bridge.
The bridge was closed last month for a time because a piece of the concrete deck simply fell out and left a gaping hole in one of the lanes.
The highway is Ruta 1, the Interamericana, the main route to Juan Santamaría airport and points west.
