“Here we go, we are working very hard, we had some details, especially with the logistics of the port with the cargo; after so much length we only have 45 meters left ”, he commented.

He stressed that this work is and will be one of the most important actions that the current state government has carried out, as it promises to end the severe flood problems suffered by the inhabitants of the Historic Center during the rainy season.

“It is a very important work in which the Historic Center will be solved,” he added.
