Cross-mountain road rebuild advances at quick pace
San José de Ocoa, Dominican Republic.- The reconstruction and expansion of the Piedra Blanca-Rancho Arriba-Ocoa cross-mountain road advance at a quick pace, as crews widen the lanes, cut slopes and install culverts.
Contractor Odebrecht Rizek project manager Flavio Campos said the 26-kilometer span currently under construction will link the communities of Rancho Arriba, Piedra Blanca with the Juan Adrian exit on the Duarte highway.
He said the existing road is so completely ruined that motorists are forced to drive father south to the Santo Domingo Beltway to reach the south region.
The Public Worth Ministry has said the road’s reconstruction forms part of an 83-kilometer project to reach the San Jose de Ocoa crossing on the Southern Highway.
Among the reasons for the quick pace of the reconstruction figure the months-long drought across the country, make the work easier.
