MERIDA — In a just a couple of weeks, the Mérida-Celestún highway will be opened to traffic, which will make it possible to avoid the towns of Kinchil and Tetiz, which will make the journey between the capital and the port take just 45 minutes, said Javier Osante Solís, director general of the Institute of Infrastructure Carretera de Yucatán (Incay).
This work was announced in 2016 as part of a project that would be completed in 2017. At that time engineer Osante reported that some $91 million pesos would be invested.
Interviewed in his offices by the Diario de Yucatan, the official explained that the highway is 120.4 kilometers long and 12 meters wide.
“Now days to go from Merida to Celestún requires an hour with five or ten minutes, but with the new work the time of travel is reduced by 3%, since you no longer have to enter the towns of Kinchil and Tetiz,” he added.
At present, on the way from the Yucatecan capital to the port, the trip takes one hour with five or ten minutes. Entering Kinchil and Tetiz represents a delay of 20 or 25 minutes, on average. With the new highway the tour can be done in just forty-five minutes.
