With the modernization and expansion of the Chichén Itzá-Valladolid road, as part of the Merida-Puerto Juarez highway, the tourist and archeological corridor Chichen Itza-Valladolid-Coba-Tulum is finally complete.
This will allow a greater influx of local, national and foreign tourism, increasing security and connectivity to transport goods, people and agricultural production throughout the states of Yucatan and Quintana Roo.
This announcement was made early this month by the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT), which stressed that “the new road that is 38.9 kilometers (24 miles) in length, required an investment of 312 million pesos ($17.3 million USD), in order to increase the width of the highway, from six to twelve meters, and to accommodate two extra lanes of 3.5 meters each (one for each direction), along with side berms.
This new road expects daily transit of six thousand vehicles on average.
“These works will reduce the transfer time from 35 to 20 minutes and will improve connectivity with the state of Quintana Roo, to increase the economic benefit of the region for tourism,” the SCT said in a statement .
SCT stated that this is a “A2 tyoe road”, and has a hydraulic base of 20 centimeters and an asphalt binder of eight centimeters, which can accommodate a maximum speed of 110 km/h (68 miles per hour).
“Works of vertical and horizontal alignment were also performed, along wth the construction of three new junctions: Tekom, Kaua and Chichén Itzá-Xcalacoop,” the SCT bulletin concluded.
