Four-lane road to new Carnival cruise port nearly done
Puerto Plata.-The Public Works Ministry on Monday pledged to within a week conclude the two-kilometer stretch of the total 8.4 kilometers of the Maimon-Puerto Plata road, which forms the first stage of the expansion to four lanes of the 44.5-kilometer road that links the town Navarrete to the Atlantic coast.
During a tour of the work Public Works official Ramon Antonio Pepin said the road´s conclusion is a commitment to the cruise company Carnival Corp., which will cut the ribbon for the tourist port at Maimon Bay (Amber Cove) on October 6.
“We’ve been practically concentrated in these two kilometers, which are 90% advanced and at the asphalt level, due to the commitment that we have with them (Carnival) to have it ready for the opening of the tourist pier,” Pepin said.
