Historic Centre of Puerto Plata remains closed for seven months, reconstruction works not moving forward
PUERTO PLATA – The work of revitalization and renovation of the historic center of Puerto Plata started more than two years ago, and it still continues to cause problems for traders and residents of the streets taken over by this construction work, specifically streets José Del Carmen Ariza, Beller y San Felipe have been closed for nearly 8 months now.
It is for this reason the Association of Businessmen and Traders of Puerto Plata (ADECOMPP) demand from the government and municipal authorities to require the Constructora Global company to complete the remaining work immediately, because the obstruction of those routes will continue to damage several establishments, such as pharmacies, shops, gift shops among other businesses.
Similarly, the directors of the Board of Neighbors noted that the work on the perimeter between the streets San Felipe and José Gabriel García, the Plaza Independencia, the Calle Duarte and the Old Market has not been completed,and people face serious difficulties to reach their homes, because traditional entrances have been blocked for more than a year now, and it is not clear when they will be open again. Motoconchos, tour guides, and local businessman are furious in regards to the situation, and want this to end.
