Governor announces road extension to alleviate Riviera Maya traffic into Cancun International

Cancun, Q.R. — An extension that would connect Cancun’s Huayacán Avenue to the entrance of Moon Palace is being considered. Governor Carlos Joaquin said the city will likely create the road extension in order to improve vehicle flow to and from Riviera Maya.

Governor Joaquin says the extended road will open up the alternate city route which will help reduce traffic due to the road construction projects being done in the area.

“There is the possibility of expanding Huayacán Avenue to the Moon Palace area. It would help a lot. We are currently in procedures with the CFE for the right of way, so we have had to wait a bit because we are in that procedure and I hope that it can move forward and that with it, we can have this alternate route that would help us a lot,” Joaquín explained on Friday.

The proposal to extend the route was well received by the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies (AMAV) who agree, would decrease airport transfer times.

Sergio González Rubiera, president of the AMAV, announced that he has information that the state government has since managed to get the right of way and with state government resources, the route would be enabled, which will be of great help to those coming from Playa del Carmen since they would no longer have to cross Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard.

“This part of Huayacán is going to run parallel to Colosio and it will save a lot of time. What we have to do is tell people because out of habit, they will want to continue going to Playa through Colosio, but if we manage to get them to take this detour, it would be good news and they will save a lot of time,” he said.
