Travel Alert: Sections of Route 32 and the Inter-American Highway in the southern Pacific zone will be temporarily closed
The Roadway Safety Council (COSEVI) reported that it will briefly close sections of two highways to install pedestrian bridges. On Wednesday night, Route 32, which connects San José with the Caribbean province of Limón, will be closed for four hours beginning at 10 p.m. A stretch of the Inter-American Highway in the southern Pacific region will be closed at noon on Thursday and will reopen at midnight Friday.
On Route 32, construction will take place in front of the public elementary school at La Marina in the canton of Pococí. Motorists should use Route 10 between Turrialba (west of Cartago) and Siquirres as an alternative.
The Inter-American Highway will be closed in front of mall Plaza Herradura. Drivers can use secondary roads in the community of Herradura, COSEVI said.
