Costa Rica Inaugurates Highly Travelled Bridge in San José with CABEI's Financial Support
The initiative is part of CABEI's US$340 million Strategic Road Infrastructure Projects Program.
San José, September 01, 2020.- The new bridge over the Virilla River on Route 32, located in the capital of Costa Rica and financed by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), was inaugurated on Wednesday.
The structure, through which it is estimated that more than 40,000 drivers pass daily to enter and leave San José, now has 3 new lanes with direction to the capital, while the two of the existing structure will operate in the direction of the provinces of Heredia and Limón.
“For CABEI this news is of great joy because we are aware that for years Costa Ricans have longed for road infrastructure with high standards that allow them to improve their quality of life. This new bridge is an example of this and what is to come," said the Executive President of CABEI, Dr. Dante Mossi.
The new bridge, which also includes a pedestrian crossing, is part of CABEI's US$340 million Strategic Road Infrastructure Projects Program, which includes major works such as the overpasses at the Zapote Roundabout, the bridge over the Virilla River on Route 1 and Route 147, which have already been completed, as well as the Northern Beltway and the overpasses at the Guadalupe Roundabout and La Bandera, which are currently underway.
