New roadways in the works for Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — Motorists in Puerto Morelos will have new roads thanks to the work carried out on Avenida Joaquín Hendricks Díaz, which for years remained closed.

Municipal president Laura Fernández Piña said the two-lane road toward the federal highway, between Timón and Zetina Gasca, is being installed. She explained that they are leveling and compacting so they can eventually seal the surface before applying asphalt.

“This avenue, in the section of the Timón to the Zetina Gasca, always remained closed because it was never paved. It was not even level so that even if it was a dirt road, vehicles could circulate. In response to a request from citizens, we included this road in the transformation of Puerto Morelos,” she said.

Laura Fernandez explained that the paving work of Joaquín Hendricks Díaz is being completed with an investment of 43 million peso from the Budget of Expenditures of the Federation.

She also reported that this week will be the paving of Goleta Street in Villas Morelos I subdivision and that in the coming days, work will be done in the arteries Brújula, Catamarán, Galeón, Carabela and 23 de Enero where the old pavement has already been removed.

“We work in different points of the municipal seat to continue transforming our Puerto Morelos and improve the quality of life of the people. Paving works, construction of sidewalks and garrisons, introduction of drainage and placement of new public lighting,” she added.

Fernández Piña said that on February 21, conversion work for new underground electric source began.

“These work projects will bring permanent benefits because we will say goodbye to the aerial wiring and the blackouts that are registered in the tourist area of our charming village. The Federal Electricity Commission and the city of Puerto Morelos have invested 20 million peso,” she explained.
