Construction of traffic artery begins in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The extension of an artery in northwest Playa del Carmen will relieve traffic once complete. Iván Tun Guevara, Director of Solidaridad Public Works says the 822-meter long artery is expected to be finished before the start of the rains.

Tun says the artery, which is being constructed on 38 North Avenue between 115th and 75th avenues, will alleviate traffic congestion for the thousands of vehicles that use the road each day.

He reported that the tons of abandoned rubble from the previous administration has already been removed and the land is being prepared. “The land is being leveled and compacted so that before the rainy season they can place the concrete and can finish it without delay,” he said.

The construction of the 6.7 meter-wide artery is a three-month long project with a cost of around seven million peso that will include six wells to prevent flooding.

“The project has been set for completion in 90 days, but the company wants to finish earlier to avoid delays due to the coming rainy season,” he added.
