    Duarte Corridor


    The construction of the Duarte Corridor in Santo Domingo is one of the most important highway infrastructure projects in the Dominican Republic. It represents a step forward in the steady advance of the country’s development.

    This project includes six tunnels and overpasses that will connect more than 15 major intersections of the capital city and the surrounding Santo Domingo province. The overpasses will be located at the intersections of John F. Kennedy Avenue and José Núñez de Cáceres; Dr. Fernando Defilló Street and John F. Kennedy Avenue; Ortega y Gasset Avenue and 27 de Febrero; Monumental Avenue and Duarte Highway; Manoguayabo Crossing and Duarte Highway; and Charles de Gaulle Avenue and San Isidro Highway.

    The Public Works and Communications Ministry expects to have these overpasses completed by the middle of 2012. The total cost of the improvements is US $163 with financing provided by the National Bank for Economic and Social Development of Brazil (BNDES).
