Residents of the District of San Felix, province of Chiriqui, protested Monday morning by blocking the four lanes of the PanAmerican Highway, demanding that the authorities of the Ministry of Public Works (MOP), provide signalization of the David-Santiago highway. According to the inhabitants the lack of signage on the part of the company responsible for the expansion project has led to a number of traffic accidents and abuses. The pedestrian bridge to the junction of the community of San Felix, is about to be completed; however, there needs to be in place an overpass for cars that require access to the interconnection of the crossing. In this area vehicles are going to and from Las Lajas, Santa Cruz, Remedios, Tole, San Juan, Juay and San Felix. The district of San Felix has a population of 6,304 inhabitants according to the 2010 census. It is an area of agricultural production, where they grow oranges, name, pineapple, passion fruit, sugar cane, and raise cattle, pigs and poultry. http://laestrella.com.pa/panama/nacional/moradores-felix-exigen-senalizar/23994131 Edited April 4, 2017 by Keith Woolford Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
