In Guanajuato, despite the pandemic, we have not stopped building works and actions that meet the needs of those who need it most. “Works that are carried out with quality, with efficiency and in short times, and that mean benefits for our communities,” said the Governor.

And proof of this is this road bridge, which is carried out in coordination with the Municipal Government, from whom we acknowledge the efforts made with the owners of the surrounding land. And also thank the National Water Commission, the authorization and the corresponding permits to carry out this work, said the President.

The State Government continues to work as a team with the municipal authorities of San Miguel de Allende, to promote development.

“For this reason, more works are coming for this municipality, such as Bulevar La Libertad, which will be a four-lane road with a bicycle lane to connect San Miguel de Allende with Dolores Hidalgo and in which it is estimated to invest more than 2 billion euros. pesos.

“And the Silao-San Miguel de Allende Highway, in which around 4 billion pesos will be allocated,” he added.

The Secretary of Infrastructure, Connectivity, and Mobility, José Tarcisio Rodríguez, explained that the project consists of the construction of a vehicular bridge with two traffic lanes, over the Laja River, with a total width of the structure of 15.0 meters, with sidewalks and garrisons.

The work includes the modernization of a 500-meter section and the construction of a 340-meter section of the bridge access points, to join the existing roads, adding a total length between roads and bridges of 936 meters.

The structure will consist of three 32-meter clearings and two intermediate piers, with a total width of the structure of 15 meters.

In addition, drainage works, lighting, relocation of CFE facilities, storm drainage, whereabouts, environmental actions, and urban image and operational marking are contemplated.

The structure and the road will allow a continuous flow of vehicles; in addition to allowing a safe crossing of the Laja river with the vehicular bridge for users. It is estimated that the road has a capacity of 3 thousand 831 vehicles.

The works for the construction of the road bridge will last 209 days, said the Head of SICOM.
