The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Route 27 that connects San José to Caldera is closed between Athens and Orotina since the severe landslides on Saturday morning.
According to the traffic police, in the morning an assessment will be conducted to determine its eventual opening.
On Saturday morning, a landslide fell on a vehicle and from there the road was closed. Also falling material has been reported in other areas.
The slides are attributed to a combination of rain and earthquakes making the ground unstable.
According to the company Globalvia, the road remains closed for prevention work. This is the latest statement from the company:
“Globalvia decided to maintain the lockdown on the stretch from Athens to Orotina (both directions). Since Saturday we have performed interventions on the slopes to prevent additional falling material. We know the inconvenience that this closure has caused and we apologize.” (Crhoy)
