Two Lanes of Ave Balboa Reopen Today In Front of Star Bay Tower Collapse

Construction & Interiors La Prensa - As of today cars will be able to use two lanes of Ave. Balboa that have been closed since 12 May 2009 when part of the sidewalk and road collapsed due to the failure of a underground retaining wall that was part of the construction of the Star Bay Tower, owned by F&F properties. The engineer in charge of the construction project, Jose Gomez, said the street was repaired and totally stabilized, but since they have not yet finished repairing the sidewalk they have designated two lanes for vehicular traffic and the third lane for pedestrians. "We cannot guarantee that there will be not be any incidents in the area of the street where we worked, but we can certify that we complied with repair design as approved by the authorities," he said. We tried to contact the person who is in charge of overseeing these repairs on the part of the Ministry of Public Works, Jorge Pitalúa, but it was impossible to speak with him.

Se Restablece la circulación en dos tramos de la vía

Desde hoy pueden volver a utilizarse dos de los carriles de la Avenida Balboa que habían sido inhabilitados desde el pasado 12 de mayo, cuando se derrumbó parte de la servidumbre pública y el muro de contención subterráneo del edificio en construcción Star Bay Tower, propiedad de F&F Properties.

El ingeniero encargado del proyecto de construcción, José Gómez, manifestó que la calle fue reparada y estabilizada en su totalidad, pero como aún no han terminado de acondicionar la acera, se designarán dos tramos para el tránsito vehicular y el tercero para que circulen los peatones.

‘No podemos garantizar que no habrá ningún incidente en el área trabajada de la calle, pero sí podemos certificar que se cumplió con el diseño de reparación aprobado por las autoridades’, recalcó. Se trató de ubicar al encargado de fiscalizar estos trabajos por parte del Ministerio de Obras Públicas, Jorge Pitalúa, pero fue imposible.
