The construction process lasted 23 months and the cost of the work oscillates in 15 million dollars each of the bridges, the construction of the 7 Sur takes a year and will be ready in January 2019.
The new architectural trend leads to new designs and cutting-edge technology, the Las Piedrecitas Overpass has the latest technology to face tectonic movements.
“In the construction of this work, seismic isolators that move 360 degrees were incorporated, the concrete is a special concrete for engineering works of this type, the waiting queues will disappear in peak hours because the bridge was designed to manage a vehicular flow of 70 to 75 thousand vehicles per day ”.
Once the construction of the 7 Sur Overpass is finished, the next project to modernize the road network will be on the Juan Pablo II Track, which begins where the traffic lights of 7 Sur were left, which has a length of 10 kilometers and ends in the traffic lights where it was Modern Plastics.
