Court orders Montezuma road to be repaired


The Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT) and the National Roadway Council (CONAVI) announced that Route 624, which connects Montezuma to neighboring towns on the Nicoya Peninsula, will undergo repairs during the next 12 months. The repairs to the road were ordered by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court (Sala IV) after residents in Montezuma pleaded for improvements to the dangerous, pot-hole-riddled road.
According to a statement by the Sala IV, vote number 2010-11938 ensures that “the necessary measures will be executed to eliminate the dust problems and resolve the faulty road conditions on Route 624 Montezuma within a period of one year.”
Due to accumulation of dust in the dry season and heavy rains in the wet season, road conditions along Route 624 are considered treacherous for residents and visitors to the heavily-visited tourist town in the southern Nicoya Peninsula.
