Traffic will be disrupted due to the construction of the Route 32 highway expansion, which connects the provinces of San Josť and Cartago.

According to the Ministry of Public Transportation, a 400-meter segment on the road in the La Galera District in Curridabat Canton, San Josť Province, was closed on Tuesday.

To complete the work, it was necessary to close this section of the highway to traffic for 12 consecutive hours, from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A viaduct is being built in the area to improve traffic flow on the Florencio del Castillo Highway Route 32. The project is estimated to be officially completed in June 2024.

Authorities are calling on drivers to avoid crossing through La Galera District. Instead, use alternative routes to cross to Cartago Province. For drivers who travel through the construction zone, there will be traffic officers regulating the passage of vehicles.

The new Galera highway construction is a result of road improvement initiatives. This week, authorities announced the construction of a new bridge in Alajuela Province.

Last week, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration approved a loan of $400 million to Costa Rica, to improve the country's road network.

What other highway is needing upgrades in Costa Rica?
