Improved Mobility Promised on Cancun-Playa del Carmen Highway in Two Weeks

The National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism (FONATUR) is addressing the problem posed by fractures in Federal Highway 307.

Faced with the problem posed by the fractures in Federal Highway 307 that currently affects traffic in the Riviera Maya, the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism (FONATUR) is responding with the highest levels of technology and thorough geophysical studies.

Raúl Bermúdez, the head of FONATUR’s CIP Cancun office, explained that they are working on three solutions. An immediate response, planned for completion in two weeks, consists of building two more lanes on the highway, running on the median. An alternate route, a four lane road running parallel to the highway beneath the high tension power lines, is scheduled to be ready within a month. They are also continuing their efforts to repair area around the sinkhole.

Regarding the alternative route in Cancun, he explained that it will run under the high voltage lines. The detour will be 24 kilometers long and they hope to have that stretch ready in 30 days. When completed, the traffic deviation will run from the area of the Ruta de los Cenotes, with four paved lanes stretching south to a point six kilometers before Playa del Carmen.

The head of FONATUR at the Federal level, Rogelio Jiménez Pons, confirmed that this alternate route will be extended from Huayacán Avenue, to the area that has already been completed before Puerto Morelos.

“We are going to improve the mobility of the area… we are going to provide all Quintana Roo residents with an alternative route to get from Cancun to Playa del Carmen. It is six kilometers before Puerto Morelos and has been built since November of last year. It reaches the Ruta de los Cenotes ”, he reiterated.
