The plan was made public January 29 in Cancun by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who presented it as part of a 6 billion peso project package.

Lourdes Latife Cardona Muza from the Cancun City Hall says that since 2021, municipal authorities have made the recurring request that the boulevard will be completely renovated. Renovation of the boulevard will improve city mobility and reduce travel times, she said adding that 356 direct jobs and 1,423 indirect jobs will be created.

The Luis Donaldo Colosio Boulevard makeover will take approximately 12 months to complete and cost around 1.3 billion peso.
