Temporary Closures on Highway for Overpass Construction in Grecia

Attention to those who frequently travel on the Bernardo Soto highway between San Ramón and Alajuela.


The Evolution Free Zone company, which is constructing an overpass in Tacares de Grecia, has confirmed that there will be temporary road closures on this route due to the installation of the beams that will form the structure.


Between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. for no more than 30 minutes on Saturday, October 28, and Sunday, October 29, the road will be closed to ensure the safety of road users during the installation of 2 beams for the main bridge of the overpass.


The company explained that they will effectively and safely install 16 beams, each measuring 33 meters in length and 1.84 meters in height, prefabricated in reinforced concrete on the three main supports of the viaduct that will serve as the entrance to the free trade zone.


“The goal is to place all the beams within a span of 4 days, and for this purpose, flagmen will be present at both ends of the work area to control vehicular and pedestrian traffic within.”


“Since each lifting process requires a complete closure of the project area until the beam is secured. This activity will not impact traffic flow on the road, but drivers are advised to avoid rubbernecking to prevent inconveniences,” Evolution stated.


The opening of the main road for the overpass is expected by the end of 2023.


The developer mentioned that these actions align with the traffic management plan for the advancement of access to the free trade zone.


The project involves a $12 million investment of private funds for a public-use structure that will ensure connectivity with the business park.
