Calle 59 set for a Total Makeover
Beginning in August, Calle 59, a principal avenue to the historic downtown Merida will undergo heavy reconstruction during the coming months.
The entire street from the Avenue Itzaes to La Mejorada in the downtown area will be separated into three parts to perform the work scheduled.
New pavement, sidewalks, lighting, electric cables, and plumbing are just some of the remodeling that will take place. The government will also be redoing the facades on 207 historic homes found along the street. Homes chosen for the repair have specific architectural and historical value.
The first section will begin at Parque de la Paz to Santiago Park, where traffic will be diverted to avoid congestion.
The second section will begin at Calle 70 to Calle 64 and the third starts at Calle 58 to the Parque de La Mejorada.
The work is scheduled to be finished before Governor Ivonne Ortega Pacheco leaves office on September 30.
95.5 million pesos have been invested into the remodel of Calle 59.
