IDB lends $17 million for Honduras highway widening

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

The Inter-American Development Bank has approved a $17.2 million loan to widen and improve the principal highway in Honduras.

The loan will complement a $30 million loan approved by the IDB in 2007 and a $50 million loan first approved by the IDB in 2004 to finish work on CA-5 Norte.

The highway links Honduras’ capital, Tegucigalpa, with the country’s main industrial area, San Pedro Sula, and with the only deep-water port in Central America, Puerto Cortés, on the Caribbean coast.
