New airport junction and main Colosio Boulevard inaugurated in Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. — Two of Cancun’s major infrastructure projects are finished two months ahead of schedule. On Sunday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador inaugurated the city’s new main artery and airport junction.

The much-awaited completion of Colosio Boulevard and the road distributor of the Cancun International Airport are finished. The two projects, which were considered vital, cost nearly 1.5 billion pesos.

President López Obrador announced that Colosio Boulevard, which was delivered two months ahead of schedule, now offers sidewalks and lighting, which means greater security for people.

He said the two projects, which together add up to almost 1.5 billion pesos in federal investments, are part of the Comprehensive Program for the Development of Strategic Projects in Cancun.

During the inaguration, Governor Mara Lezama said that she was deeply grateful to López Obrador. “I am deeply grateful to you for having listened to the need of the people of Quintana Roo and I am sure that I am thanking you on behalf of the people of Quintana Roo.”

Other major infrastructure projects still in the works include the Cancun Nichupté lagoon bridge, the construction of Chac Mool Avenue and the highway that will link the airport with the Maya Train station. All three are scheduled for completion in March of 2024.
