Street Paving and Drainage Accelerated in Rio das Ostras

[Article from Secom Rio das Ostras, originally posted here. My translation.]

Urbanization work in progress will cost about R$55 million.

The work of the Secretary of Urban Planning and Construction is happening at an accelerated pace. Dozens of streets are being paved, adding drainage, and being urbanized, adding about fifteen kilometers of pavement. The City Council set aside R$20 million to urbanize the roads near Rodovia Amaral Peixoto in Rio das Ostras. The work, long awaited by the population, will begin later this month. The investments, including bicycle paths, street signs and parking, will be conducted between Jardim Bela Vista and Praia Âncora.
