Traffic to the southwest restored

Azua, Dominican Republic.- Traffic was provisionally restored Sunday night across the bridge at Los Pilones, the only major road link between the country’s southwest region and the capital.

Public Works Ministry crews worked during more than 12 hours with backhoes, bulldozers and dump trucks filled with materials the voids swept away by the Ocoa river, and which had weakened the entire area from the road to the abutments on the east side of the structure.

Traffic was impossible Saturday afternoon as the river level peaked from the torrential rains over most of the country, from Tropical Storm Isaac.
