Regarding Construction of the North-South Highway and the Central American University. After the construction of the new airport near San Luis Talpa in the 1980s, the Salvadoran government began construction on a new highway to connect the airport with the capital. This North-South highway passed directly through many small communities that the University of Central America supported during the legal negotiations related to the highway construction.
