Renovada Ciudad Colonial 1-11-2015 Update

The work continues on the Tu Nueva Ciudad Colonial remodeling project in the Colonial Zone. A few of the roads are still dug up but for the most part they are putting the finishing touches on the streets.

One of my favorite things is what i have been asking for for many many years Speed Bumps or what they call here in Dominican Republic Policía Acostado (Police Laying Down). My opinion, this will do so much for improving the traffic flow in these streets filled with visitors, both tourists and Dominicans, to the Colonial City.

The newest detours map of the “Etapa Actual de Obras Enero II”. Some of the streets are closed for a day or 2 while they install the new speed bumps but for the most part this map is correct for now.

Good things. The detour through Parque Rosado is no longer being used. Isabel la Católica is partially open. Padre Billini, which was open to traffic, has been temporarily closed due to the work placing the Policía Acostado in their places. They are adding many nice new road signs with the speed limit, pedestrian crossing, speed bump alert and even stop signs. And the work continues…
