Is Cajas currently open?

Hello! We keep asking this question because in a month we drive to Cuenca from the coast, through Guayaquil via Cajas. I have the government version of road conditions but stupidly don’t know the names/numbers of the roads involved. (I have a driver)

So if your travels take you through this route, can you tell me of the condition, hours of passage (if any), if there is a great deal of traffic, etc. It is a long trip and I want to be certain that I can even get to the hotel where I have reservations.

Thanks for any and all help.
