New six-lane cloverleaf set for construction at Cancun International to replace current overpass

Cancun, Q.R. — The construction of a new vehicular system at the Cancun airport is set to begin next week. Guido Mendiburu Solis, General Director of the Center for Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation for the state, says a cloverleaf will be built to ease congestion.

The new structure will be interconnected with other Cancun roadways including Huayacán and Chac Mool Avenues. He said the machinery for the project is currently on its way as is the signage required for the roadwork.

Construction will be at the current overpass bridge. Once the cloverleaf is complete, the overpass will be demolished. The new cloverleaf system will consist of six lanes, three in each direction, and will provide direct access to the Cancun International Airport and the Cancun Hotel Zone.

The construction of the new vehicular system for the airport will be done at the same time as the remodeling of Colosio Boulevard, Cancun’s main roadway artery. Solis said the remodeling of the main Boulevard is expected to begin in August, which he said, will be done gradually and in sections.

He said that next week, authorities will announce alternate routes for Cancun motorists to avoid traffic congestion.
