JUNE! Such a highly anticipated month – whether due to the upcoming XXIV edition of Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers Circus Mexicus, golf tournaments, and of course Sunday’s elections! Here in Puerto Peñasco – and Sonora – elections are being held for Mayor, State Representative, and Governor. IMPORTANT: As per official decree, a “dry law” will be in effect JUNE 6TH and JUNE 7th (from the first minute of Saturday through the last minute of Sunday) – this means NO alcohol sales across the country due to the elections. Plan accordingly.
There’s lots going on, so let’s get to it and run down the DRY weekend!
Getting to and around town
– Movement has begun just north of town at the “intersection” of the Sonoyta-Peñasco Highway and turn off toward Laguna del Mar/Laguna Shores and Mayan Palace. Work in this area is focusing on an overpass to help increase safety along this stretch. Stay alert for detours.
– Part of Blvd. Juarez when coming into town is OPEN. Remain alert at stop light as traffic is now more active at that intersection and that particular spot has seen better days (linking Blvd. Juarez to Blvd. Josefa Ortiz and Blvd. Samuel Ocaña).
– Road work in front of City Hall is moving along quickly with the recent opening up of Blvd. Juarez and Calle Luis Encinas (near movie theater) toward the Old Port.
– Some road “patching” work is taking place on the highway East of town toward Mayan Palace. DRIVE CAREFULLY!
