The 47th Street Tourist and Gastronomic Corridor will be inaugurated on November 3 with artistic and cultural activities that include the participation of soloists, musical trios, folkloric ballet, Yucatecan music, regional comedy shows, urban musicians and creative bazaars.

This was announced by Renán Barrera Concha, mayor of Mérida, who recalled that this project “represents a great investment, not only economically. It is also a social investment that will increase commerce, create a different space for families to stroll and live together, and means that Mérida will have new attractions to promote itself nationally and internationally; not only for its gastronomic diversity, but also for its artistic activities.

It is worth remembering that on October 27, 2022, Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal and Mayor Barrera Concha presented this project that would connect Plaza Grande with Santa Lucía, Santa Ana and Gran Parque de la Plancha. The project was scheduled to be inaugurated at the end of this year.

Interviewed on the matter, Barrera Concha said that this Great Tourist and Gastronomic Corridor became the flagship work of his administration.

The inauguration of this important project, which seeks to revitalize commerce in this area, with a different concept for the inhabitants and visitors of the Historic Center, will take place on November 3, during the festivities of the souls, and is framed as a great project that will connect 60th Street with 47th Street and is with the Great Park of La Plancha.

He considered that, this Gastronomic and Tourist Corridor is a new way of thinking about the city, it is another way of building the future where authorities and society work together so that each project benefits multiple sectors.

“Merida stands today as one of the most important capital cities in Mexico, for many reasons, among them, its social peace, its culture, its recreational attractions, its proximity to the most representative Mayan ceremonial centers, and also for its infrastructure; and a sample of the latter will be, without a doubt, the Great Tourist and Gastronomic Corridor,” he said.

In addition, with this project, he said, we are beginning to give a different face to this part of the city, which has become a real attraction, both for Merida residents and for national and foreign visitors.

“There are few projects that combine all the benefits for the different sectors of society and this Corridor is no exception, because as has been stated in different forums, the Gastronomic Corridor is an integral project that opens up a wide range of opportunities in the areas of tourism, commerce, gastronomy, fun and recreation, without a doubt, a project of great social and economic impact”, he emphasized.

Mayor denies severe effects of the Gastronomic Corridor

The Mayor recalled that, from the beginning of the works in this area, the City Hall deployed a meticulous organization to affect as little as possible the residents of both homes and businesses already operating in the area, for this purpose an office was opened in coordination with the Yucatan delegation of the National Chamber of the Restaurant Industry and Condimentary Food (Canirac).

After conciliating and finding the pertinent solutions,” he continued, “the works began, which included, in the first instance, the removal of the overhead wiring, electricity, telephone and public lighting poles; today all the supply of these services will be subway, contributing to the improvement of the urban physiognomy.

Also, from 47th Street by 56th Street to the intersection of 47th Street by 50th Street has already been opened to vehicular traffic, and the last works are being carried out in the section from 47th Street by 50th Street to the intersection of 47th Street.

Currently, work is being done for the installation of the new urban furniture of the corridor (benches, trash cans, planters), there will be concrete planters that will allow the corridor to be planted with trees, from 56th Street to 52nd Street, where 19 benches and 16 planters have already been placed.

This weekend the remaining 72 planters should be in Mérida and will be delivered to the Municipal Public Services Department, which, with the advice of the Sustainable Development Unit, will assemble them in two or three days for their subsequent placement.

As reported, this Corridor will connect Plaza Grande, Santa Lucia Park, Santa Ana and the Great Park of “La Plancha”, through 1,750 linear meters of renovated streets and urban infrastructure in accordance with the guidelines of sustainability and ecology.

Barrera Concha said that Merida is now a UNESCO Creative City in the gastronomy category, and continues to receive distinctions such as Best Conference and Convention Destination in the country, awarded by Convenciones de Latinoamérica magazine, and Best Gourmet Destination in Mexico, endorsed by the publication Food and Travel.
