Major Isla Mujeres roadway overhaul nearing completion

Isla Mujeres, Q. R. — In order to continue improving urban infrastructure, the Municipal Government of Isla Mujeres continues with the rehabilitation of its central island streets.

Mayor Atenea Gómez Ricalde says the Public Works Directorate continues with the work which is part of a comprehensive rehabilitation project in the Colonia Centro of the island.

With these projects, the Municipal Government reaffirms its commitment to work for the beautification of the island, which will contribute to generating more and better opportunities for island families by keeping public spaces in optimal condition, she said.

Ricalde says the project being done includes the repair of sidewalks and curbs, vehicular streams, dismantling and removal of existing vertical signs, placement of traffic and tourist signs, securing pedestrian areas and changing lighting with LED technology and larger lighting cone, among others.

The Director of Public Works Projects of Isla Mujeres, Ángel Andrés Hernández Azueta, explained that until November 15th, Madero Avenue between Guerrero and Juárez Avenues will remain closed due to the rehabilitation project.

He says there, workers are demolishing old concrete and replacing it with a new stamped concrete crossing. They are also repairing and leveling sinkholes and manhole covers while casting new covers where needed.

Given the temporary closure of the Avenues, Hernández Azueta recommended that the islanders make use of alternate roads and not leave vehicles parked on the street.
