The modern boulevard had an investment of 42 million pesos and will serve to vent the traffic of Avenida Pacífico

With the inauguration of Avenida Atlántico by Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel, a 15-year-old lawsuit to create this boulevard was ended, which will serve as a vehicular outlet for Avenida Pacífico, which runs parallel to this new road, in the which 42 million pesos were invested, since it also has a crossing by the railroad tracks.

Ordaz Coppel stressed that not only were the missing 500 meters of boulevard built, right at the junction of the railroad tracks, but also a perpendicular access road to the Real del Valle subdivision, 200 meters long, was also built. that this avenue was also truncated, as only one of its two vehicular traffic bodies had been paved, and this was possible thanks to the cession of the land by the owner.

The state governor commented that once the optimal connectivity for the Atlantic Boulevard has been solved, what now follows is to build the Delfin Avenue, to close a circuit of roads for this sector.

“This was a work of great benefit for Mazatlán, no one was charged a peso, it is a work of 42 million pesos of a direct contribution made by the State Government, but without charging any individual, because it is for the city , which will continue to be beautified because it will connect with the bike path that comes from Camarón Sábalo and the one that is being built to Los Cerritos ”, he explained.
