Medina breaks ground for Santo Domingo Beltway
Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina on Tuesday headed groundbreaking for the construction of the Santo Domingo Beltway, whose first phase will cost more than US$97.0 million.
The chief executive was accompanied by Public Works minister Gonzalo Castillo in the activity to start the work on the four-lane highway that will link the port at Boca Chica with the two at Haina.
The first phase will link the ports at Haina with the Duarte Highway, and the second stage, slated to start in 2016, will complete the bypass by linking Boca Chica.
“This roadway will connect two major port areas and the five major roads that serve Santo Domingo, while taking heavy traffic out of the capital,” Castillo said in the ceremony held 23 kilometers north of the city on the Duarte highway Tuesday morning.
