Entrepreneurs and residents of the Gastronomic Corridor in Mérida have announced that they received a notification warning them that construction works will be extended until the end of the month, and they even speculate that they may not be completed until the end of the year.
As we have previously reported in La Verdad Noticias, several entrepreneurs have expressed their dissatisfaction with the works, despite the fact that it represents a future benefit for their businesses.
Unfortunately, the inconveniences persist, as the Mérida City Council has informed them that once again, the delivery of the project will be postponed until the end of the month or perhaps even until the end of this year.
Business owners and property owners indicate that due to the construction works of the mentioned project, they have suffered economic losses of up to 70 percent, while the residents living in the area have expressed satisfaction with the changes.
Currently, 47th Street between 50th and 48th still appears with heavy machinery, dust, and dozens of workers who are working diligently to complete it as soon as possible.
It is worth mentioning that the Mayor of Mérida, Renán Barrera Concha, indicated that the gastronomic corridor would be completed in August.
The project began in March, and some restaurants found themselves needing to continue operating even while the construction was ongoing, resulting in economic losses of 70 percent, as they have remained open despite the road closures.
The only ones who have benefited from the Gastronomic Corridor are the four families still living in the area since the rest of the properties are hotels, restaurants, and boutiques. They claim that the intervention of the City Council in the area has been beneficial for them as it will improve their quality of life and, above all, the image of their neighborhood.
