nt the work planned for the Bridge of the Americas will be suspended. Suarez announced that the contract for rehabilitation of the bridge of the Americas will continue its route, with menial jobs that do not affect traffic flow in this sector of the city. This is how they will do the work on one of the entrances to the bridge where there was a collapse in December 2010. Therefore, there will be a partial closure, which will be announced shortly.
