Elevated Roads Are Coming Haiti

Imagine driving over 'Kafou Aeroport' in Delmas Haiti... Imagine no more... In the very near future, Haitian motorists may be driving OVER some of the most congested intersections in Port-au-Prince.

The Haiti Ministry of Public Works (MTPTC) announced their plan to build elevated roads starting in these two strategic locations:

1) Kafou Aeroport, a very busy and overcrowded intersection joining Route de Delmas with Boulevard Toussaint Louverture (the road that leads to Port-au-Prince International Airport) and Avenue Martin Luther King. Kafou Aeroport is possibly the biggest bottleneck on Route de Delmas.

2) Bizoton, en route to Carrefour in the area where the Haitian Coast Guard headquarters (Gardes Cotes d'Haiti) is located. This is one of the most congested stretch of road for motorists going to Carrefour and the entire southern peninsula of Haiti from its capital Port-au-Prince.

The project is scheduled to begin this month of April.

I always wondered why this never happened before.

All it takes, besides a good integrated planification, plan study, etc...

is, in his execution, the setting of prefabricated pre stressed concrete elements, and it's done. The only problem to it is we are not used to pre stressing method, procedure, or methodology, but in Haiti we know about this theory for so long. You cannot go over long spans over 10 m and more without this. Just reinforced concrete wont do, would be too costly, and ugly. But all we have to do is getting used to
