The Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) and the Government of Nuevo Leon announced an investment to modernize the state’s highway.

Jorge Arganis, Minister of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation, and Samuel García, Governor of Nuevo Leon, signed an agreement to modernize section 58 of the state’s federal highway. Works will be carried out for two years and resources  will be sourced locally. The investment aims to improve the stretch of highway from kilometer 64+120 to kilometer 98+190 (Galeana-San Roberto section) and other corresponding junctions, reads SICT’s press release.

The main objective is to modernize Section III of the current road to a Type A4, which consists of four lanes with a single section, a 23-meter wide crown made up of two 3.5-meter lanes, 3-meter external shoulders and 1-meter interiors. The project will install a central barrier that will provide durability and more security.

SICT and the Government of Nuevo Leon announced the modernization of four junctions: Junction 1, "Interserrana 85" at kilometer 188+200 of federal highway 85 Ciudad Victoria Monterrey intersection with kilometer 0+000 of the new inter-mountain highway; Junction 2, "Puerto Pastores" at kilometer 64+120 of federal highway 58 intersection with access to the municipal seat of Galeana; Junction 3, " Y griega de abajo" at kilometer 69+700 of federal highway 58 intersection with State Highway 61 Matehuala-La Poza and Entronque; and Junction 4, "San Roberto" at kilometer 98+190 of federal highway 58 intersection with Highway 57 (Matehuala Saltillo Section).

Nuevo Leon continues to promote infrastructure investment, as Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Governor García announced a major plan to tackle Monterrey’s water crisis last week, as reported by MBN.
