Puerto Rico Highway 14 is a main highway connecting Cayey, Puerto Rico to Ponce, Puerto Rico. The road runs the same course as the historic Carretera Central. The Coamo-to-Ponce section of PR-14 was built under the direction of Spanish engineer Raimundo Camprubí Escudero (b. Pamplona 15 March 1846 - d. Madrid 1924).[1]

Except in the city of Ponce where, with the exception of the Ponce Historic Zone, the road is a 4-lane road, the rest of PR-14 is a two-lane country road as it makes its way through the four towns it runs through, Juana Diaz, Coamo, Aibonito and Cayey. PR-14 is one of the roads that lead into the Ponce Historic Zone.[2]
