Businesses on Hato Rey street appeal for long-overdue pavement work

More than a dozen merchants on Calle Manuel Camuñas in the Hato Rey sector of San Juan raised their voices in protest on Tuesday at the absence of maintenance of the streets that provide access to a dozen important businesses in the area.


A package of photographs sent to the local news media shows that the merchants have had to buy loose asphalt fill, or “tierra mogolla,” for the numerous large potholes that have formed in the asphalt that has been in use for more than 30 years without receiving maintenance.


“We know that the Municipality of San Juan has a program in place to pave streets in the Capital; we call on Mayor Miguel Romero to include the short Manuel Camuñas Street, which runs parallel to the south of the busy Carlos Chardón Avenue,” said Andrés Medina Gutiérrez, an engineer with a business on Manuel Camuñas Street. “We merchants and businessmen have done our bit by making repairs and sometimes buying tons of asphalt to patch up the street. However, it no longer supports this type of arrangement; it is necessary to repave so that customers can access our businesses and companies, where we have more than 400 employees who depend on us.”
