CFE to remove overhead power lines along Cancun’s Colosio Boulevard

Cancun, Q.R. — On Tuesday, personnel from the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) will begin the dismantling of the overhead power lines along Colosio Boulevard.

The overhead system is being replaced by underground power lines and will take seveal months to complete.

Governor Mara Lezama said the overhead lines are being replaced with an underground system to not only improve urban image, but also to improve public safety.

Lezama says on April 9, Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) personnel will begin the dismantling of the overhead lines from Chac Mool Avenue to the Cancun Airport.

“The underground wiring provides greater security in the area and will guarantee electricity is not affected during hurricane season or any other situation,” she said.

The removal of the overhead lines will improve urban image and public safety.

Accompanied by Armando Lara De Nigris, Secretary of Sustainable Urban Territorial Development (SEDETUS), Governor Lezama is urging motorists to be aware of the work being done.

Overhead lines from Chao Mool to the Cancun Airport are being taken down.

“Take the necessary precautions. Leave home earlier because perhaps you will have to reduce the speed in some of the lanes. Stay attentive to the progress of these maneuvers that will last a few months,” she said.
