Now it is just a quick hour trip from Jaco Beach to San Jose! 11 kilometers of Ruta 27 are now repaired and opened back up for travel. The road had been closed since June 12th due to multiple landslides and rock falls. And with the rainy season beginning they wanted to fix the exposed rocks and steep angles before they get worse. In order to fix the damaged parts of the road they had to erect steel mesh and fix the construction of the gutters in an attempt to stop the debris and materials from falling all over the road. From now on there will not be any machinery on the highway, however there will be workers maintaining and fixing the road as time goes on. Of course there was plenty of congestion this weekend due to the re-opening, but it should return to easy sailing soon.
