new toll road San Juan to Canovanas

I understand that there is a new toll road, 66, from San Juan to Canovanas. Can anyone help with directions how to get to route 66 from the Munuz Marin Airport. Also, does it have a "name"; my map has only route numbers but replies here on the web often give the name of the road instead. Thanks.

Exit the airport on 26 toward Carolina and just up a few miles you will see signs for the toll road to Fajardo and you will just merge onto it right from 26. I doubt you will find it on any map.

Maps do not show Rt. 66 since it is a brand new road. Its name is Roberto Sanchez Vilella, a former governor. Rt. 66 is the popular name and most people do not know the official name yet.

There is a toll station, $1.50 each way. There are also many iguanas crossing the road, some of which never made it. : ( You have to pay nothing for those. ; )

Questions? Ask!

the 66 is at the end of the road heading to Carolina(east) the street will divide in 2 just stay on the left and youll see the sign that says Fajardo 66. its easy to find.

We traveled this road in August of 2007. We just followed the road signs for Fajardo and we were on it. We didn't know it existed as it was not on our map, our GPS kept telling us to "turn around and get back on the road" (Garmin) It was actually very funny! I actually hollered back "I am on the road you stupid thing". Once we figured out where we were it was all good. But it certainly was one of those famous "couple moments".

Follow as advised above, BUT as soon as you see the Toys-R-Us sign, watch carefully to yopu right. The entrance to Rd. 66 is somewhat hidden or unconspicuous, and you may pass it without noticing.
