Two main Playa del Carmen arteries undergo resurfacing

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Two main arteries in Playa del Carmen are being repaired. Governor Carlos Joaquin reported the stripping and repaving of 115th Avenue and 28 de julio.

He says the two main roadways in the city’s west are the heart of Riviera Maya and, once repaired, will improve vehicular traffic as well as renew the image of the city through better public services and urban equipment.

“It is important that we keep pace with the demographic growth of municipalities such as Solidaridad, which is always accelerated like Playa del Carmen and Puerto Aventuras, which both require adequate public services,” said Joaquin in a statement.

The head of the Ministry of Public Works, William Conrado Alarcón explained that the repaving project for 115th Avenue will cost just over 9.8 million peso and include resurfacing of more than 12,897 square meters of asphalt.

The road along 115th Ave. will be repaved 5 cm thick, he said, adding that repairs will also include horizontal marking of lane dividers as well as the stabilization of damaged areas and the construction of seven absorption wells.

For the project of Avenida 28 de Julio between the federal highway and Av. Chemuyil, more than 10.6 million peso will be invested to resurface the road.

Playa del Carmen mayor, Lili Campos acknowledged the support and backing of the state government. She pointed out that these two main roads were abandoned for years.
