The stretch on the Caldera Highway that goes between Atenas to Orotina will remain closed indefinitely, according to the construction company Autopistas del Sol.
Originally it was reported in mid-February that construction would close the route until the beginning of March, but the reopening continues to be delayed.
The 11-kilometer stretch has undergone several repairs since it opened last year. After opening on Jan. 27, 2010, mudslides and falling rocks have been responsible for several injuries and a death on the highway that leads to Caldera on the Pacific Coast.
Drivers will be re-routed to the winding, former passage between Atenas and Orotina that goes through Monte de Aguacate.
