Here's a picture of the recently opened Dynamic Toll Lane on PR-22. The DTL is exclusive to cars and motorcycles with the AutoExpreso seal. Trucks and buses are not allowed in the express lane with the exception of the Metro Urbano, a BRT system. The lanes are reversible depending on the rush hours and the toll will go from $0.50 cents to $6.00 dollars depending on the traffic.

Does FHWA have regulatory authority over Puerto Rico expressway/freeways?

PR-52 Southbound. San Juan to Ponce.


South of Cayey. This is the highest part of the PR Tollway system (around 2,500 ft).

Northbound, north of Salinas and the PR-53 (the main east coast tollway) terminus. I love these dry mountains, maybe I'm way too used to living in the rainy north.

PR-53: Salinas to Fajardo (incomplete).

This highway travels through some of Puerto Rico's less developed parts (I use that term loosely, this island is pretty dense population wise).

Eastbound, heading towards Guayama

Route 53 by Peter Dutton, on Flickr

Some Street View pictures I selected of the same freeway












The tollway turns into a standard four lane avenue here, PR-54, a sort of temporary main highway that replaced PR-3 (the old main east
coast highway) in the town of Guayama. It's supposed to continue towards the completed segment in Yabucoa. BTW this really sharp curve isn't really representative of the standards of our main tollways.

PR-9 (Under Construction)

PR-9 is part of the Ponce beltway, and is mostly a freeway. This road doesn't really follow international highway standards, and has one traffic signal near its southern terminus. Despite being a freeway, it doesn't use the blue highway shield, as it is more of a complementary route to Highway 10,
the main highway connecting Ponce and Arecibo. PR-10 is also a partial freeway in Ponce. PR-10 in Ponce connects with the eastern part of Ponce and 9 with the western part of town.

PR-52: Near Salinas

A Truck Speed Limit sign, there is generally a standard Speed Limit sign (65 mph), but it had fallen when the photo was shot (2013). The yellow sign signals is a warning for potential cattle.

This is actually 53 West in Guayama around Km 83. This is right after westbound on-ramp from exit 83.
