City Hall okays partial closing of street

City Hall has approved the provisional closing of the right lane of Calle Leopoldo Navarro, from Pedro Henriquez Ureña to Calle Caonabo, at a request of the United States Embassy, as reported in Diario Libre. The embassy made the request for security reasons. Two years ago, the Embassy had lobbied for the closing of both lanes of the busy street, but this was not approved. The Central Bank of the Republic is on the same street.
