Tolls Drop on San José –Caldera Highway

August 27, 2010

Autopistas del Sol, the company that built and operates the

Caldera Highway

, announced on Monday that it will lower tolls on Friday, Aug. 27.

Fees at all four toll booths will drop by an average of ¢27.5 ($0.05). Cars traveling the entire highway will pay a total of ¢110 ($0.22) less.

The new tariffs for four-wheel automobiles will be ¢290 ($0.57) at the EscazúPlaza, ¢430 ($0.85) at the San Rafael toll station, ¢570 ($1.13) at the Atenas stop and ¢430 ($ 0.85) in Pozón.

Autopistas del Sol credited the fee drop to the falling price of the U.S. dollar versus the Costa Rican colón, which on Monday was valued at ¢506 to the dollar.

Toll booth fees are revised quarterly to account for the colón’s performance against the dollar.
