City departments get involved to hurry Fifth Avenue project

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Work along Fifth Avenue is being analyzed by city departments in an attempt to hurry the work along for completion. William Conrado Alarcón, the Secretary of State Works and David Duarte Castilla of Municipal Land Management and Sustainability, are now involved with the project strategy.

Their involvement was made after a Fifth Avenue tour by the mayor and state governor Carlos Joaquín González, where merchants requested that the project be concluded.

William Conrado Alarcón commented that the contracted companies point to issues such as Covid-19 and the recent Tropical Storm Gamma and Hurricane Delta, as well as delays in the delivery of material.

The companies said they would have Fifth Avenue ready by mid-November and the side streets in early December, which in this case, will be up to 18th Street as contemplated in the project. The state works secretary said they will hold meetings so that there are no more delays.

“We will meet with the secretary of Municipal Regulation to look around and see the progress that was promised and of that, we will be informing the governor to ensure that the goals are met,” he said.
