Cancun, Q.R. — The new vehicular bridge of the Nichupté lagoon is scheduled for delivery in April of 2024. Governor Mara Lezama says the 8.8 kilometer-long bridge is being constructed to connect the Cancun Hotel Zone with the city.
She says construction on the bridge is being done around the clock with hundreds of workers in 24/7 shifts.
“This project will be emblematic, not only because of its spectacular architecture and the incredible landscapes that it will give us… it will become an example of how the will of a humanist government that works by and for the people can finally deliver a project that has been stalled for more than 20 years come true in a year,” Lezama said.
She said that as part of the New Agreement for the Well-being and Development of Quintana Roo, she managed more than 7 billion pesos directly with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador so that this iconic project can transform the urban image of Cancun.
At the construction site, Mara Lezama reiterated that the new Nichupté bridge will be a point of development for mobility.
“This is one of the multiple and historic projects that demonstrate the profound transformation that we are carrying out in Quintana Roo,” she said.
At the beginning of May, Guido Mendiburu Solís, the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation Infrastructure (SICT) of Cancun, reported that construction work in the lagoon has also been started.
