The Consortium formed by Consultécnicos and JOYCO carries out the construction audit of the rehabilitation of 13.6 kilometers of highway, between El Placer and Hacienda El Paraíso and from El Crucero Santa Elena to Santa Elena. The road is of a secondary nature, with a relatively straight line on flat terrain. It consists of a bi-directional two-lane road paved in asphalt concrete in fair to poor condition.
The Government of the Department of Valle finances these works with the purpose of promoting greater socioeconomic inclusion, generating income, overcoming poverty and consolidating territories, achieving permanent traffic, safety and comfort in the population. The aim is to improve mobility in the tourist corridor, where there are various Vallecaucana food restaurants and the La María hacienda, the setting for Jorge Isaacs’ novel. With the progress of these works, the increase in vehicular flow has been noted.
