New federal highway projects will benefit San Felipe 2007

A list of the new federal priorities for highway construction has been released and there is significant news for the San Felipe region. The first good news is that the road from Puertecitos to Laguna Chapala is to be funded in 2008 and work complete in 2010. This continuation of the two lane road south from San Felipe will be 7 meters wide and have a total length of 110 km. Total estimated cost will be 600 million pesos (approx. $60 million dollars). This will mean that it will be possible to drive from San Felipe and connect up with the main peninsular highway (Route 1) south to La Paz and Los Cabos. We will no longer be the end of the road!

The completion of the 150 km 4 lane divided highway, 12 meters wide, from Mexicali to San Felipe will be funded to start in 2009 and will be completed in 2012 at a total cost of 1100 million pesos (approx. $110 million dollars). More infrastructure developments can be found below.
