Cancun, Q.R. – The highway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen is under construction and down to one lane in parts.
The partial road closure is the result of maintenance that will be in effect until the second week of May. The Ministry of Communication and Transportation (SCT) says the work along the federal highway will see the road down to one lane during the morning hours from now until the beginning of May.
Travelers along the federal route can expect delays beginning approximately 30 kilometers south of Playa del Carmen toward the police filter. This will also affect traffic flow in and out of the town of Puerto Morelos.
SCT says they are adding an additional layer of asphalt to the exiting layer to add durability and help avoid problems for the upcoming rainy season.
The work is scheduled only for the north-south direction and will not affect side routes.
