San José, August 21, 2020. -  The new overpass at the La Bandera roundabout in San José, which includes the creation of four lanes that will speed up traffic in the capital of Costa Rica, received its start order, which will allow the completion of the Road Infrastructure Strategic Works Program financed by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) for more than US$340 million.

This program is made up of several works of great national importance. Some have already been carried out, such as the overpasses in the Zapote Rotunda, the Bridge over the Virilla River on Route 1 and on Route 147, and access to the Moín Container Terminal in Limón; while others are in execution such as the Northern Bypass, the Bridge over the Virilla River on Route 32 and the overpasses of the Guadalupe Roundabout.

The Executive President of CABEI, Dr. Dante Mossi was pleased with the good news and stressed that “investment in infrastructure is one of the many ways to reactivate the economy in Central America in these difficult times experienced by the crisis caused by the pandemic”.

As reported by the government, the work is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2021.
