Ruta 32 will be closing again this week Thursday and Friday as the public works ministry continues with its line painting.
The road, which connects the capital to Limón, will repeat the same requirements as conducted last week with a total closure of a certain sector of the road. According to a statement from the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes, Ruta 32 will be closed between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. for both days
The closure will occur between the crossing at Río Frío and the toll station in the area of Heredia, officials said. The demarcation work apparently requires the full closure of the road as the route is notorious for poor visibility due to weather conditions and the nature of the landscape.
This painting will also allow work to continue filling the deep potholes in the area with an investment of around 700 million colons, or around $1.2 million, according to Mauricio Sojo, a representative with the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad.
If weather conditions are poor then the work will stop and passage be opened immediately to drivers, Sojo said. Public works advises drivers to use alternate routes such as Vara Blanca or Ruta 10 to Turrialba.
