Once the work is completed the first two lanes of Via España will be reopened to the public, but then the two lanes from the Banco Delta to the Felix B. Maduro store will be closed in order to continue with the re-positioning of the underground public utilities. During this process Via España will remain partially open with just two lanes for use by vehicles. The work to re-position public utilities began on 26 September 2011 and consisted of the removal of overhead wires, and pipes that were running down the middle of the road underground, in order to position both on the sides of the roadway in public easement areas. After the work is completed, the way will have been cleared for the construction of the station that will contribute to converting the capital city into a friendlier place, with new public and urban spaces for the benefit of all.

Editor's Comment: Please - if you don't absolutely have to use Via España - then don't. The roadway is getting more and more squeezed with each passing day and the traffic is backing up more and more. Go around. Use Calle 50 to go from the old part of the city out towards San Francisco, and Via Transistmica to go in the other direction. Navigate your way through the side streets in Obarrio and El Cangrejo. But if you can, stay away from Via España whenever possible.
