You must mean the corner in Sosua going up to Hispanola. Corraplata have been working on this for almost a month. And now another pile of crap blocking the corner once again.
and every few days they put up a corplatta sign , like they are proud of what they are doing, and in an hour the sign falls into the ditch and becomes part of the mess.

So to summarize, the new bridge is 4 lanes, has sidewalks on either side, guard rails that are practically useless, and will be open before Xmas.

It has rained a lot in Cabarete, not sure about that in Sabaneta de Congrejo.

It's rainy everywhere in DR

Have they striped it Windy ? - Yesterday they were waiting for a break in the rain to finish the final asphalt lift and pour the slope protection on abutments and suspend a water pipe.
Anyway - anyone know the time of the dedication tomorrow ?

It's not just the corner. The disaster goes up the hill past Hispaniola Residency. It's one lane with mud, water and a dug up road. It's been two months now and no progress.
Just like the busy road through Callejon de la Loma, Cabarete. The water company is very good at breaking up roads but they never think of fixing them afterwards.

When Paliza inspected the bridge, he said the President was coming on the 21st.

I say take a few extra days to do all the little finishes and slope protection because once traffic starts going through it will be very difficult to do it.
With all the rain we have had they can be given another week.
My God I see sun this morning
