Autopista from Centro to EZE partially blocked 14/4/16

I finished my business in BsAs and booked Taxi Ezeiza for the trip to the airport from Centro this afternoon. The driver arrived early and said there was problem with road blockage so I left early but arrived on time. More than half the trip was on side streets. I have not been able to find out the cause (protest re: Uber, striking bank employees, or ???). Props to Taxi Ezeiza for proactively addressing this and getting me to the airport on time.

Please move if this should go in the Uber thread or someplace else.

Yes blocking roads is a favourite pastime for those with a chip on their shoulder. I've experienced it before when going to EZE. It was quite entertaining to watch until the protesters started threatening our car with sticks, tyre fires and supermarket trolleys!! Thankfully police outriders came to our rescue.

I flew out out of EZE on Friday, 8 Apr in the pm. i left the city at 4:00. My driver took a side road path for much of the way, saying that the highway was blocked. I didn't ask what but assumed construction.

Good luck.
Despite the threat of storms and flooding forecast for overnight and today where I am it hasn't happened....yet. The sun has even made the odd appearance. Very humid though.
