Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Work on island infrastructure has officially begun. Isla Mujeres Mayor Atenea Gómez Ricald kicked off the start of what will include several projects to modernize the island’s main areas.
The ambitious projects will include the rehabilitation and improvement of the Urban Image of Rueda Medina Avenue and its surrounding streets.
Guadalupe Martínez Márquez, President of the Isla Mujeres Hotel Association, called it a pleasant surprise since these are much needed projects, saying that Rueda Medina Avenue and the center “are the face that Isla Mujeres shows to tourists, so we are very pleased to carry out this great project,” she said.
Mauricio Ugalde, the General Manager of Ixchel Beach Hotel, pointed out that not only will the projects create a better view in the eyes of the visitor, but in the long term, there will be an improved sewage system and an underground electric wiring system, which “will shield us because we know that we are a vulnerable zone.”
The infrastructure project includes the rehabilitation of planters, fittings, pedestrian walkways, lighting, signage, spaces and ramps for people with disabilities, among others.
Gómez Ricald has also confirmed a new underground electrical system for a central section of the island.
