Governor reports 24/7 construction of upcoming Nichupté Lagoon Bridge of Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. — The long awaited Nichupté Lagoon Bridge of Cancun will be a reality in 2024, reported Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa. She made the comment Saturday after a progress tour of the city’s mega-project.

Lezama says the bridge construction will transform the urban image of Cancun. The bridge is being constructed with support of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who has made historic investments in various managed projects.

Lezama said the construction of the bridge is being worked on 24/7, day and night including holidays to ensure completion within the scheduled time. She mentioned that it is a historical project that will meet not only the needs of the people of Cancun, but also tourists and the people of Quintana Roo.

“When the people’s money is applied where it should be and how it should be, it pays off and gives more. This is how we work with the New Agreement for the Well-being and Development of Quintana Roo where people are at the center of the government’s actions,” Mara Lezama stressed.

While touring the project, she reported that the bridge will emerge at the intersection of Colosio Boulevard and Kabah Avenue. “It will practically reach kilometer 15 at the height of Kukulcán Plaza. Work is already underway on that side of the hotel zone, exactly where the bridge will reach,” she said.

The governor of Quintana Roo reiterated that the Nichupté Bridge is a necessary project especially in terms of Civil Protection, but also to reduce the vehicle load of Kukulcán Boulevard.

“It will also improve the lives of human beings, people who come and go on public transportation who will spend less time on transportation and more time at home with their children, with their family,” she added.

Last week, Ingenieros Civiles Asociados (ICA), the company building the city bridge, reported a 25 percent advancement in its construction.
