More than 50,000 daily users of the Pan-American Highway will reduce their travel times with the construction of a 4.5 kilometer viaduct.

Panama City, December 5th, 2022. - The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) and the Bridges and Roads Infrastructures consortium formalized today the financing contract for the US$140 million Beach Corridor Project with the objective of reducing vehicular travel times and road safety for more than 50,000 Panamanians who use the Pan-American Highway, the only road that connects the capital with the interior provinces and the beach area, on a daily basis.
