Santo Domingo.- Public Works will open to traffic an overpass at de Gaulle corner Mella avenues, median improvements Núñez de Cáceres Av. and on the Expreso Quinto Centenario, all three in Greater Santo Domingo

Ribbon-cutting for the de Gaulle overpass is set for 10am Friday, with a similar ceremony an hour later at Quinto Centenario, and concldude at Nuñez de Caceres.

“Public Works opens the overpass to facilitate traffic while we work on the expropriation and construction of marginal road for local traffic,” the agency said.

It said the de Gaulle overpass will benefit thousands of Dominicans who pass through the road every day, easing traffic, saving fuel, time, lowering costs for motorists, a positive impact on the environment, and helps spur business in those areas.

The works on Quinto Centenario include the reconstruction of more than 2 kilometers of sidewalks, rebuilt medians and shoulders and lateral and new landscaping.

Ricardolito, I think that your statement should been something more like. In good times indeed, now traffic can flow more at ease than what the chaos of now is. Let's start seeing the glass half full instead of half empty. Gonzalo Castillo is doing a great job and saving the country lots of money on the roads that he doing around the country, most of the constructions are being finished some 2 and 4 months ahead of schedule and that means lots of saving for the taxpayers. Thank you Gonzalo Castillo you got my respect.

I am glad to see that they are doing something somewhere because they are no keeping their promises on the north coast. There has been a promise to pave a road for ten years and at last promise of the president was to begin in February 2016 well he does have three days left .

Of all the construction projects, the one that thrills me the most is the completion of the 2nd. line extension to Mega Centro... Hopefully, by the time I get back to SD, it'll be finished and operating.
It's said to be completed by April. I've seen pictures of the rail bridge over the Ozama. It looks AWSOME, to put it mildly.!
Since I've sold my home there, I'll be staying with the cousin who lives not far from Mega Centro. I'll be able to walk there and forever say goodbye to chatarra conchos and dilapidate minibuses. No more sweating my balls off using such decrepit, outmoded form of transport to get to the nearest Metro station in La 17.
This, plus the newly constructed overpass in La Mella, will forever guarantee the reduction in the numbers of said dangerous vehicles.!
Life is good.!
