Lagoon portion of Nichupté bridge project to start in coming week

Cancun, Q. R. — The lagoon construction for the Nichupté bridge is expected to begin this week. The barges transporting the necessary material has been held up in Holbox due to the windy weather.

Guido Mendiburu Solís, the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation Infrastructure (SICT) of Cancun, said that the barges were expected to begin arriving in Cancun over the weekend as weather permitted.

He says the SICT has been waiting for their arrival so they can start construction work in the lagoon. Mendiburu says all supplies will be arriving by boats through the Malecón Tajamar ramp.

Mendiburu explained that the lagoon bridge project has a 15 percent advancement where they have been working at the junction of Colosio Avenue.

Pillars have been placed girders have been built. Also, beams for the junctions have been prefabricated and will be placed in the lagoon area. If work goes according to schedule, the Nichupté vehicular bridge is scheduled to be operational in March 2024.
