The current round of improvements to the highway began more than a year ago.

The highway, which also has surveillance cameras, eases travel between Mérida and the Belize border. The road also promotes agricultural and commercial development in municipalities such as Teabo, Maní, Oxkutzcab, Ticul and Peto.

Electric power is supplied through the Federal Electricity Commission’s network.

At the Oxkutzcab-Teabo overpass, at kilometer 70 along the Mérida-Chetumal road, 64 LED lights will be placed at the top, and 32 at the bottom .

At Tzucacab-Peto, at kilometer 120.5, 32 led lights will be placed both at the top and bottom.

Technical work for the placement of the luminaires began this week.
