Temporary detour made along cracked Playa del Carmen highway

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The Ministry of Communications and Transportation says that a diverted portion of roadway has been created around the site where an elongated crack was found.

The Ministry says that motorists traveling the Playa del Carmen federal highway at Kilometer 307 are to use to temporary 400-meter-long detour where the highway crack remains. Authorities are continuing to deal with the opening in the roadway, noting that the temporary detour of traffic will prevent a sinkhole.

The Ministry noted that more than 50,000 vehicles a day travel that section of roadway. State officials are investigating via a geotechnical study to determine a definitive solution to the damage.
