Insegura y abandonada La Pica

Jul 08, 2016 Written by  Redacción LA ESQUINA
Por casi una década, los residentes y ciudadanos que transitan por la carretera #3 entre Maunabo y Yabucoa, conocida por La Pica, conocen de primera mano el deterioro de la ruta. Hoyos, pastizales, derrumbes y varias áreas con apenas un carril son evidencia clara de la inseguridad que representa esta carretera. Durante las pasadas semanas, han sido múltiples las llamadas recibidas a la redacción de LA ESQUINA, en reclamo de acción gubernamental ante el peligroso estado de la vía. Varios de los desprendimientos de la PR-3 datan desde el año 2008, cuando se registraron las llamadas “lluvias centenarias”, que afectaron gran parte de los pueblos de la región, con pérdidas millonarias. Hace dos años, en entrevista con este medio, el entonces director regional del Departamento de Transportación y Obras Públicas (DTOP), Gabriel Rivera, reconoció la falta de recursos para atender las pésimas condiciones en que se encuentran las carreteras estatales del sureste. Planteó que había escasez de recursos y reafirmó la crisis fiscal. “No tenemos fondos para atender la situación”, admitió Rivera. La situación en La Pica se complica cuando, recientemente, el DTOP anunció el cierre de un tramo de la 901 en Yabucoa, debido a la construcción de la rotonda, cerca del puente de la PR-53. El representante del Distrito 34 y presidente de la Comisión de Transportación de la Cámara de Representantes, Ramón Luis Cruz Burgos, informó que en una reunión -efectuada hace pocos meses- la directora de la Autoridad de Carreteras, Carmen Villar, se comprometió en identificar los fondos para mejorar la vía. Además, recorrió la ruta, luego de conversar con los alcaldes, Jorge Márquez (Maunabo) y Rafy Surillo (Yabucoa) en la Casa Alcaldía de Yabucoa. “Hace un mes (la directora de la Autoridad de Carreteras) se comunicó con Jorge Márquez y le mencionó que ya habían identificado una partida para iniciar el proceso de pase de fondos”, indicó Cruz Burgos.

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get four emails with the same
    comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!

    Wonderful site you have here but I was curious
    if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I'd really love to be a part of online community where I can get feedback from other
    experienced people that share the same interest. If you have
    any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!
