PR-66 was the latest addition to the Puerto Rico Strategic Roadway Network that connects expressway PR-53 and Expressway PR-26 to create a non-stop trip from San Juan to the eastern part of the island. CSA worked for the Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation Authority in different capacities for Phases I and II of the project. These improvements lead to a safer and more secure driving experience, mitigate congestion and ease the flow of traffic.
The Phase I Construction Inspections were for a section of approximately 1.5 miles long of four-lane controlled access and toll collection expressway. The project scope involved the asphalt roadway, shoulders and medians.
For the PR-66 Phase II Design, CSA was responsible for all design scope involving approximately five miles of PR-66. The expressway has four lanes (two in each direction) with future expansion planned for six lanes. The toll plaza at the center of the project is a high-speed toll with four high-speed lanes and eight coin change lanes. Due to the proximity of El Yunque National Forest, the environmental aspects of the project required strict adherence to all protective measures.
