Headway being made in construction of new Cancun airport cloverleaf overpass

Cancun, Q. R. — The new Cancun airport overpass is around 20 percent in its completion, reported Governor Mara Lezama. In a holiday update, the governor said “the construction of the new junction to the Cancun airport is advancing, a quality project that will solve the bottlenecks that are generated in this area with a large vehicular flow and even more so now with the significant increase in visitors to the destination.”

Lezama was on site for a construction advancement visit where the new cloverleaf overpass is being built. She says workers have progressed a little more than 20 percent of the project.

She also acknowledged that the munch-needed construction project is adding to the road congestion, but says as progress is made, the congestion will be lessened.

She reported that the government of Benito Juárez (Cancun) maintains constant communication with representatives of the tourism sector in order to prevent further road travel issues with residents and visitors.

The Director of Municipal Tourism for Benito Juarez, Juan Pablo de Zulueta Razo, pointed out that the Cancun Always Improving campaign informs both tourism service providers and tourists themselves about the projects that are being done in the municipality.

He says the completed projects will benefit future travelers adding that currently, there are 62 Transit Officers providing road direction to drivers to help lessen Cancun highway traffic congestion.
