PLAYA DEL CARMEN — Although the project was supposed to be finished before the end of Governor Roberto Borge’s term, the new Playa del Carmen airport remains incomplete.
Construction of the new airstrip, which is located near the town of Puerto Aventuras, remains stalled even though more than 70 million pesos ($3.8 million USD) have been invested into the first stage of the project.
It was in 2014 when Gov. Borge announced a new airstrip would be built to replace the current space being used on 15th Ave. and 1st Ave. South.
The entire project was to cost taxpayers 220 million pesos ($12.2 million USD) and include a new airstrip and access road that would enter the airport off the Cancun-Chetumal highway at kilometer 277 near Puerto Aventuras.
The unfinished project will become the responsibility of the newly elected government officials, who are set to take over at the end of the month.
