The governor, Alfredo Ramirez Bedollasupervised the rehabilitation and expansion works of the Ecuándureo-La Piedad highway, which are carried out by the federal concessionaire Red de Carreteras de Occidente (RCO) with an investment of 2,000 million pesos.
Accompanied by technicians and engineers from RCO, the president reviewed the progress of the work of a 22-kilometre section, corresponding to the infrastructure project to convert the road into a high-specification toll-free highway for users.
The governor recalled that these works were carried out by authorization of the federal government and RCO is obliged to maintain the highway for the next 30 years, once the work is completed in May 2023.
This is a very important work for Michoacán because it generates local jobs and will allow greater security for users and strengthen the economic and social productivity of the region,” he said.
In addition, he highlighted that RCO is working on other projects, such as the construction of the Maravatío-Zitácuaro branch, where an investment of 4,000 million pesos is estimated, and the rehabilitation of the Panindícuaro-Zinapécuaro highway section for around 1,000 million pesos.
