Costa Rica infrastructure is steadily improving; new bridges complete

Posted by Steve Linder on Sat, Nov, 14, 2009

Bridge Update:  All the major bridges from Jaco to Dominical are now completed.  The new bridge is now open in Parrita though they still have it a bit constricted while they finish the striping and guard rails but you no longer have to wait at the one lane antiquated bridge to cross the river.  The bridge across the Sevegre River has now been fully widened to two lanes and only waits for center lane striping and reflectors.  The bridge across the Naranjo River just south of Quepos is now fully operational, two lanes wide and even has some break down space.  The only bridge left to be completed is the one lane bridge by the town of Hatillo, which was only installed a few years ago and is close to Dominical.  This is welcome news for the southern region since an antiquated hammock bridge recently collapsed in the central region on the Tarcoles River.  It also speeds the trip to Ojochal.
