City advances project with demolition of old Cancun airport overpass

Cancun, Q.R. — Demolition of the old Cancun airport bridge has begun. On Tuesday, the City of Cancun issued a heads up to motorist traveling in the area.

The City of Cancun reported that workers began to tear down the former El Trébol bridge Tuesday night. While the work is being done, the Cancun Transit Directorate changed traffic circulation in the area.

Workers are currently demolishing the former bridge that connected Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard with the Cancun International Airport.

The demolition of the old structure caused traffic changes in Airport Road Distributor. The right lanes of Colosio Boulevard toward Playa del Carmen have been closed. Drivers will need to head toward the hotel zone to the Fonatur roundabout.

Vehicles traveling from the hotel zone to Playa del Carmen must go to the airport to return and take Colosio. The demolition is expected to be finished Wednesday morning.

On Monday, the Secretary of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) reported that the new cloverleaf overpass at the Cancun airport is approximately 64 percent finished.
