RECOPE Spreads Cash For Road Projects

October 3, 2008

The Costa Rican National Oil Refinery (RECOPE) has agreed to donate $2,000 each to 41 municipalities to pave their roads.

The donation should cover more than 4 million liters of asphalt and asphalt emulsion in towns and villages that include such frequent tourist spots as Poás and Turrialba, both near volcanoes by the same name in the Central Valley, and the north-central Costa Rican town of Sarapiquí, a RECOPE press release said.

“RECOPE is collaborating with rural communities through its local government contribution program, and it will continue to do so with communities and town councils make a request requiring the donation of asphalt and/or asphalt emulsion to develop road works,” said the state-run refinery’s president, José León Desanti.

The funds could also make for a smoother ride through Santa Ana, San Rafael de Heredia, Alajuelita and Escazú, all outside of San José.
