By José Antonio Perez

Jan. 30, 2017.  Given serious deterioration along some stretches of the Puerto Peñasco – Caborca State Highway, the municipal administration is beginning to put necessary materials toward filling holes along the important route.

Terencio Gutiérrez Valenzuela, Director of Public Projects, Urban Development, Ecology, and Public Services detailed while the State highway is not directly the responsibility of the city, they are going to use part of the 60 tons of polymer layer obtained for use within the urban center on the road.  In direct conversations with the State Highway Board, he detailed, following budget cuts the state office has been working to address stretches of the deteriorated highway. However, recent rains uncovered the pot holes once more and so the city will work on repairs.
