Heard a large truck crossed and did damage in the night. Has bridge been closed again? Has damage been assessed properly?

That bridge needs to be replaced with a new one.

All the metal bridges like that one in the DR were built by Trujillo. They are that old.

It happened just a hour after I passed through on my way to STI yesterday.
I heard the news on Jose Gutierrez radio show when I arrived at Santiago.

And the new bridge?
Not happening...
My guess is because it is not directly related to a beach or tourism related renovation project.
POTDR clearly has his priorities.

Do you know that it won't be happening? I hope it WILL be happening in the not-too-distant future, because it is ridiculous all the heavy traffic going around the tortuous alternative route.
