The much anticipated expansion of the two-lane highway from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to Punta de Mita, in Riviera Nayarit, begins this week, with a 250 million peso investment on behalf of the state of Nayarit, as promised by governor Ney González Sánchez. The new 7.4 km. stretch will consist of four lanes built with hydraulic concrete. The project is expected to conclude by the beginning of May, 2012 at the latest, just in time for the Tianguis Turístico Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit. Once concluded, the project will increase the value of this already sought-after region, frequented by both national and international tourists, hoteliers and real estate developers.
