BICENTENNIAL ROUNDABOUT -GUADALUPE- (COMPLETED)

Sustainable Development Goals -SDGs- the project contributes to

Highlighted Features

The construction of the new overpass at the traffic light intersection in Guadalupe began in January 2020 and will conclude in the first half of 2021. This project will connect with the Circunvalación Norte highway; the underground passage will be 790 meters long, with four lanes in the overpass (two per direction), and a roundabout will be built with two lanes per direction to allow access to the nearby localities. Sidewalks on both sides, bus bays, a pedestrian bridge, and an expanded culvert over the Torres River will also be constructed.

Role of UNOPS

Implementing agency responsible for contracting and auditing construction, and supervising the work. The physical measurement audit allows controlling both the contractor's work and the supervisor's. UNOPS carries out the Project's social management and strengthens the capacities of the Executing Unit CONAVI-CABEI, particularly in terms of construction supervision.

 

An integral project

The work is part of an integral project aimed at the execution of 3 underpasses on the Circunvalation Road RN 39, beneath the Garantías Sociales and La Bandera roundabouts and the Guadalupe intersection (where a roundabout will be constructed and the underpass will go beneath it).

 

Benefits

Route 39 or Circunvalación Road RN 39 is one of the main traffic arteries of the capital city of Costa Rica. The underpasses will expedite vehicle flow throughout the area, through which more than 70,000 vehicles travel daily.
