Road extension contract.

Costa Rica's National Roads Authority awarded a road extension concession worth $94 million to the Spanish consortium FCC, reports (Nov. 9, 2011). FCC's offer was the best received of the 11 bids submitted, said Carlos Acosta, director of CONAVI. The work, to be completed within two years, involves the expansion to four lanes of 50 kms of the Interamericana Norte, between Canas and Liberia. "The Spanish firm has proposed using hydraulic concrete, which has a lifespan of 20 years. The project includes construction of three overpasses at the Canas, Liberia and Bagaces intersections. It will include road safety components such as sidewalks, bicycle lanes and new pedestrian bridges. There are 19 bridges along this route that will need to be expanded to four lanes. Another tender will be awarded for this work before 2012.
