Cancun, Q.R. — Progress on the Nichupté vehicular bridge of Cancun is nearly 40 percent. This week, Governor Mara Lezama toured the city’s latest mega-project reporting 39 percent completion in general work.
She says the lagoon bridge is one of the state’s major projects she promoted at the International Tourism Fair (FITUR) in Spain.
She says the projection is that the bridge will be ready this year.
During the tour, Lezama said the bridge over the Nichupté Lagoon will be free to use, exempt from tolls. The completed vehicular bridge will be 8.8 kilometers long and have two interchanges.
“It is being built under the Top Down system with the most modern technology. Access is contemplated at the intersection of Colosio Avenue and Kabah,” she said.
Lezama reported that the lagoon bridge project is coming in at a cost of more than 7 billion pesos and is a project being constructed hand-in-hand with the federal government headed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
She said once in operation, the bridge will significantly reduce travel times for local city workers who commute to the Cancun Hotel Zone as well as for residents and tourists.
