Second stretch of Santo Domingo bypass ready
Another 16.5 km of the Circunvalacion de Santo Domingo, the city’s bypass, are ready for their official inauguration. The Circunvalacion II road begins at Km. 22 of Duarte Highway and passes through the Yamasa road in Punta, Villa Mella. The bypass connects the towns of Haras Nacionales, La Victoria and Guerra. The four-lane highway was constructed to shorten trips for motorists coming from the north who do not need to head into Santo Domingo.
The second stretch of the bypass will reach La Isabela International Airport in northern Santo Domingo. The construction includes a 3 km link to the Av. Antonio Guzman that leads to the airport. Improvements were made to Av. Antonio Guzman where it connects with Av. Jacobo Majluta as part of the bypass construction.
The 26 km first part of the bypass, Circunvalacion I, begins at Haina Port to the south and heads north to connect at Km. 22 of the Duarte Highway near Merca Santo Domingo. In addition to improving traffic flow to Haina Port, the bypass allows fast access to the 6 de Noviembre Highway to San Cristobal and Bani, Los Alcarrizos and Duarte Highway. It benefits the communities of Haina, El Cajuilito, Monte Adentro, La Pared, Palave, Caballona, Lecheria, Hato Nuevo and Pedro Brand.
A third 10 km phase of the bypass, Circunvalacion III, will run four kilometers outside from the San Isidro Air Base and later connect to the Juan Pablo II Highway, the toll road to Samana near its Guerra exit.
In addition to opening up new areas for industrial and farming development, the highway will primarily serve to decongestion traffic in many streets and avenues of the National District.
The road was carried out by Dominican companies Compreica-Alba Sanchez.
The bypass is programmed to be completed in February 2016 when it links in to the Boca Chica area near Las Americas International Airport and the Multimodal Caucedo Port.
