Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — A rehabilitated highway in Isla Mujeres has official been opened. On Tuesday, the Government of Isla Mujeres opened the coastal highway which leads to the hotels and beaches along Costa Mujeres of the Continental Mainland.
According to Isla Mujeres Mayor Atenea Gómez Ricalde, approximately 4.5 kilometers of “urgent” highway was repaved along the 25 kilometers of coast. She reported it was a project of the State Government Secretariat that will benefit the hotels.
Gómez Ricalde explained that the 4.5 kilometers paved upfront “was the urgent part however, I aspire to have a great Costa Mujeres Boulevard, so soon, we are going to find the funds to make that happen.”
She said that the road repair will be promoted in the next government, which will be headed by governor-elect Mara Lezama Espinosa, so that the road is able to better serve tourists.
“The general plan is already being discussed with the governor-elect to push the project together at the federal level so that SICT, Fonatur, Sectur can make a significant investment because this is the new hotel zone in the north of Quintana Roo,” she said.
