Be ready for the street closures on September 15th and 16th

As previously published in The Yucatan Times, Mexican Independence Day celebrations will affect Mérida traffic, and several streets in the downtown area, including Calle 60, Calle 62 and Paseo de Montejo will be temporarily closed for celebrations of the “Día del Grito” on the night of Tuesday September 15th.

But also, on the occasion of Independence Day Parade on Wednesday September 16th,  street closures are scheduled to start at 6 a.m., along with the relocation of bus stops at the same hour.

In turn, since September 16th is an official holiday, banking institutions will suspend their operations to the public that day.

Calles 47, 51, 55 and 59, that run from west to east, will be closed at their intersections with Calle 60 and Calle 58. While Calle 64 will be closed at the corner with 63; and Calle 66 will be closed at its intersections with 67 and 71.

Calles 49, 53, 57 and 61, that run from east to west, will be closed at their intersections with Calle 56.  Meanwhile, Calle 58 will be closed at its intersections with 65, 69 and 73.

From north to south, there will be closures at the corner of Calle 61 and 62 (Plaza Grande), and at the corner of Calle 45 and 58. From south to north, the streets that will be closed are Calle 73 on the corner with Calle 71; and Calle 64 on the corner with Calle 60.

Motorists can use Circuito Colonias and Calle 79 to move from west to east; and Circuito Colonias and Calle 77 to go from east to west.

For those heading south of the city, Calle 66 can be used as a fast track; and finally, to go from south to north drivers can take Calle 52.

Garbage collection service will not take place on the 16th, so the City urges citizens not to take out their waste during this holiday.
