‘La Platina’ bridge head loses job
María Ramírez, who’s in charge of bridges for the Public Works and Transportation Ministry (MOPT), lost her job after failing to solve the problem of the much-maligned bridge over the Virilla River, otherwise known as the “Platina Bridge.”
Officials from MOPT made the announcement at a press conference Wednesday. The ministry announced that a four-lane project along the same path, parallel to the current bridge, will be constructed in two years at the cost of $15 million.
