Beginning June 21, the National Tourism Promotion Fund (FONATUR) will begin repaving the Kukulcán Boulevard in the Cancun hotel zone, a work in which 56.2 million pesos will be invested.
Raúl Bermúdez Arreola, in charge of dispatch at the Comprehensively Planned Center (CIP) Cancun, announced that the project will be in charge of the subsidiary Fonatur Infraestructura, whose contract establishes that the works will be carried out from June, with the completion date of the November 5 of this year.
The goal, he said, is to carry out the works along 12.7 kilometers of Kukulcán Boulevard, which consist of milling and resurfacing of the asphalt layer, covering the 7.5 meter width of each lane of the road.
The official added that they will pay special attention to the quality of the work, since it will be cut between three and nine centimeters thick and it will be replaced with hot mix asphalt, in order to guarantee the resistance of the pavement.
In accordance with the Fonatur Infraestructura work plan, the work will be carried out in isolated sections, taking into account the need of the areas that most require it, until the 12.7 kilometers contemplated are added, covering both the seaside and the lagoon side of Boulevard Kukulcán.
In order to prevent complications in the vehicular traffic of the hotel zone, the works will be carried out only at night in the first stage from June 21 to August 15; While from August 16 to November 5, work will be carried out during the day and at night, the official explained.
Likewise, at all times throughout the project, there will be the support of a topography brigade and a laboratory brigade to guarantee quality control and that the works progress as planned.
Regarding the budget, Bermúdez Arreola commented that the 56.2 million pesos are contemplated in the financial item authorized to the agency corresponding to the 2021 exercise, and other complementary works to be carried out during the second half of the year that allows the hotel zone to be kept in optimal conditions.
Finally, he called on local users, tourists, and workers in the area to take the necessary measures during the dates in which the resurfacing works will be carried out, in order to prevent road conflicts and accidents in the sections where the works will be carried out.
