After 31 Years, the New San Jose Caldera Highway is Now Fully Operational in Costa Rica
Date:1/30/2010

Costa Rica has a incredible new toll road cutting in half the time it takes to get to the Pacific coast from San Jose. A project conceived 31 years ago and nearly 10 years in the making is now completely operational. Here is a story of perseverance that is a must read for anyone familiar with the less than stellar reputation of Costa Rica's highway system. This is a huge boom to Pacific Lots developments, the largest expat development in Costa Rica, cutting an hour off the drive to reach the southern region.

Ojochal, Costa Rica (PRWEB) January 30, 2010 -- Costa Ricans and Expats cheered as the new Caldera highway to the Pacific officially opened in Costa Rica this week. The completed highway, initially planned over 30 years ago, began operation on January 28th, 2010, 3 months ahead of schedule. What was once a dream in the eyes of the administration of Rodrigo Carazo Odio, President of Costa Rica back in 1979 is now reality. Work on the project ground to a halt about 10 years ago after it was discovered that the government had not yet expropriated all the land needed to build the road. About three years ago current President Oscar Arias got the project back on track. "This is a huge boom to Pacific Lots expat community located in the southern Pacific region" said CEO Steve Linder. "It cuts an hour off the drive time to reach our developments".

What and Why? - The 77 Kilometers, built at an estimated $238 million dollars, was financed by Autopistas Del Sol, a consortium based in Spain. The company agreed to complete the road in exchange of a 25 year, 6 month concession. This agreement allows the company to collect tolls on the road equivalent to 1820 colones (about $3 dollars) for the entire route.

Pay us in Tolls - The first section to open was from San Jose to Cuidad Colon. When the first 310 colon toll collection started in Escazu, the open
