Permanent bridge over Chavon ready soon

John Modesto, vice president of Grupo Modesto announces that the permanent bridge over Chavon River will be in operation by 15 November. The bridge has cost RD$71 million and was built higher than the previous structure so that it would not be vulnerable to a collapse, as happened following the surge of waters caused by Hurricane Jeanne in September. A temporary causeway has been in place since October.
