The municipality of Aguas Buenas on Sunday announced an aggressive road repair plan to improve the condition of the town’s state and municipal roadways.


The plan, which began implementation several months ago, aims to improve road infrastructure to increase the safety of drivers and pedestrians. The plan includes the construction of ditches, and repaving of streets and municipal roads.


Aguas Buenas Mayor Karina Nieves Serrano said “since my arrival at the mayor’s office I made one of the priorities to address the critical state of our roads.”


“We are taking an important step to ensure that our residents can travel safely and comfortably,” she said.


The municipal government has invested $2.5 million from American Recovery Plan Act Funds, another $501,000 from legislative funds allocated by district Sens. Nitza Morán and Juan Oscar Morales, and Rep. Jorge Navarro, as well as $1.3 million from DTOP’s Changing Lanes program.


“The funds assigned for the resurfacing of the roads come from combined federal, state and legislative funds, so we continue to work as a team and make good use of the money for direct services that benefit citizens,” the mayor said.


Neighborhoods that have been impacted so far are: Sonadora, Jagüeyes, Cagüitas, Sumidero, Juan Asencio and El Pueblo. Next up are Bayamoncito, Bairoa, Mula and Mulitas.
