The governor of the entity, Argenis Chávez, reported that he appointed the Intravial team to attend to this situation and assured that the technical report is already being drawn up in order to determine the causes that generated the fall of the passageway and restore the passage in the largest as soon as possible.
The regional president stressed that together with the Ministry of Public Works a preventive maintenance plan is being carried out on bridges with high and medium vehicular traffic in order to avoid incidents before the arrival of the rainy season.
