The placement of benches, decoration, and underground electrical installations began along the stretch of the Gastronomy Corridor on 47th Street in Mérida’s downtown area. Although the initial schedule indicated that the project would be completed on September, José Luis Martínez Semerena, Director of Economic Development and Tourism in Mérida, stated that due to the decision to have services such as internet and even natural gas underground, the delivery will now take place in mid-September, as this aspect of the project is 90 percent complete.

According to the official, it was initially planned for this section of the Gastronomy Corridor to be finished this month; however, it was postponed because all the utility cabling was decided to be placed underground.

“At the beginning, there was a planned schedule, but it had to be rethought since internet, telephony, electricity, and even natural gas will be underground. This implied that, as installations are still being made underground, the opening couldn’t take place,” he explained.

Martínez Semerena mentioned that the works on 47th Street would be completed by mid-September, and the Gastronomy Corridor as a whole would be finished by December or at the latest, January 2024.

He also indicated that Claudia González Góngora, head of the National Chamber of the Restaurant and Seasoned Food Industry (Canirac) Yucatán, has mentioned new restaurants that will be opening in that area.

“The director of Canirac has informed us that there are around 10 new projects being developed simultaneously, taking advantage of this renovation to process their permits with the INAH (National Institute of Anthropology and History). They will likely open in the coming months,” he said.

On another note, it was confirmed that benches were being installed along the street yesterday; site workers indicated that the project is over 90 percent complete, so it will be finished in the next few weeks.
