Something not right?

Description

They are redoing this whole road from Jamalca to Pedro Ruiz Gallo, expect long delays. Single lane traffic, very dusty, but beautiful canyon. We were delayed maybe 1.5 hours. Beware of the insane bus drivers, they will do anything to get one car length ahead.

Latest Check-Ins

The road works are still going on. We were lucky and did not have to stop at both construction sites where there is one lane traffic. Judging the waiting line in the opposite direction, it can take quite a while, if you arrive at the wrong time.

Report Check-In

This is still going on. Multiple places you’ll have to stop. Longest one was about 45 minutes and a few short ones. Nothing crazy and the road is still fine even though you have to go up the mountain a bit now. I don’t think this road work will be done for years because it seems like they’ve completely changed the route of the road.

Report Check-In

The road works are definitely not complete. I was stopped at four or five different spots along this route. Waiting times ranged from about ten minutes to nearly an hour at one stop.

Report Check-In

The road works are complete, except for a single twisty section about 10km to the west of this warning. They are alternating traffic there, we waited about 40 minutes there.
There are several landslide spots along the road, so they might be working on them if it has rained a lot recently (rain season is Nov - April).
