The ACT also announced that as part of the Road Safety Improvements project, PR-189 is being resurfaced from kilometer (km) 0 to km 3.3 in both directions in the municipality of Caguas.

The work began Monday and is to be performed at night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. It involves lane closures in both directions due to the removal of the asphalt surface and replacement with new asphalt.

With traffic congestion anticipated in the area, drivers are encouraged to use the WAZE app to reduce delays in travel times.
