Within the work planned is the paving of about 220 km of new roads and the maintenance of 1,100 km of roads and intercity streets, said the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, José Amadeo Santana.

"Although Santana did not specify what the pending projects are, he said a focus on rural roads is a priority this year, because they are trying to pave 140 kilometers funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (BCIE ).

‘One of the projects is the stabilization of Rio Blanco-Siuna-Bilwi. We will do ten or 15 kilometers in hydraulic concrete ... (and) attend the impassable points with reinforced concrete to ensure access to the Caribbean coast’, said Santana" reported Laprensa.com.ni
