At a cost of $3 million, $328 thousand of which were contributed by the bilateral Honduras - El Salvador program of the European Union, the bridge has a length of 88 meters and two lanes, with a running surface of 7.2 meters and pedestrian sidewalks on both sides.
With cooperation from the Japanese government, the construction of a new bridge between the towns of Santa Fe and Las Tablillas is being planned in order to integrate both areas.
The 362 meter bridge above the San Juan river will streamline the transit of goods and create opportunities for the development of new logistics routes.
The Santa Fe Bridge, built in Nicaragua over the San Juan River, 5 kilometers from the border with Costa Rica, will not be opened as long as the confrontation between the two governments continues.
A $15 million donation by the Japanese Government will be used to design the "Santa Fe" bridge over River San Juan.
