The Bicentennial Overpass: Almost Ready

By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 19 October, 2010

The City of Acapulco has constructed a raised viaduct along the center of Cuauhtémoc, to double the capacity of the thoroughfare and improve traffic flow to and from the Costera Alemán and downtown. For several months Acapulco locals have faced horrid traffic snarls and local utilities blackouts in the stretch of Avenida Cuauhtémoc from the exit of the Maxi-Tunnel to Parque Papagayo. But it has been in a worthy cause.

According to Mayor Jóse Luis Ávila Sánchez, the project, which cost $140 million pesos, is “89.27% complete,” and will be officially opened in ribbon-cutting ceremonies on the nation’s bicentennial day, November 20, 2010. The project commenced last April.
