Landslide Caused Closure Of San José – Caldera For Most Of The Day Friday


A landslide on Ruta 27 – the San José – Caldera – closed the highway between Atenas and Orotina this morning shortly after 9:30am. This afternoon one lane of the autopista was re-opened as work crews removed most of the debris from the road.

The landslide occurred between kilometres 49 and 50 of the autopista.

The concessionaire, Autopistas del Sol, used special equipment to remove the debris as quickly as possible and ensured that autopista was safe for users before re-opening it.
