They are 'unsigned' because Puerto Rico is not (yet) a USA state.

Hmm...then why are Alaska's interstates (the ones that are actually freeways) unsigned as well then?

They also have a lower speed limit than non-interstate Puerto Rican motorways

aqui les dejo algunos video de la pelicula fast and furious 5, aunque esta pelicula en parte fue filmada en San Juan, Puerto Rico, pues las escenas en San Juan pasaron para los videntes como si fuera brazil. estas escenas fueron filmadas en el sector de hato rey la zona bancaria de San Juan, en el mismo muestra algunas de las avenidas y el puente Moscoso

New Open Road Tolls in PR-52 expressway in Juana Díaz, PR. They replaced a traditional mainline barrier toll. Instead of building a single gantry across both directions, they split the toll by building the ORT some distance before the old toll separately on each direction.

Southbound


Northbound

There is another ORT in the new segment of PR-66 but does not have non-Autoexpreso lanes like these tolls have.

Looks nice. Congratulations to Puerto Rico =)

P.S.
Btw, how's the safety and security situation in Puerto Rico atm? Is it safe there? Do I have to worry about violent crime?

Btw, my question is with regards to areas such as San Juan (the capital) all the way up to Aguadilla.....

I have not found a good picture of the ORT in PR-66 however it looks basically the same as above but without the R+ lane and the gantry goes accross the entire roadway. All three were built at the same time and went live around the same time too.

The safety around here... yes there is violent crime but it is mostly related drugs and the same precautions you would take in any major city in the US or around the world apply here too. Be aware of your surroundings, don't make yourself a target, don't get into unknown or obscure places. The ATMs are generally safe but again, same precautions as above. Best places are those located in well lit areas such as in malls and gas stations (preferably located inside store).

Nice. Looks like a typical US freeway.

Also, off topic, but I see a living dinosaur in that picture...a K-mart
