BECC opens US$30mn Sonora paving project for public consultation (Mexico)

The US-Mexico Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC) has released a paving project for Mexico's Agua Prieta city in northeastern Sonora state for public consultation.

BECC and the North American Development Bank (NADB) will begin considerations to certify the project on or after April 1.

Paving will cost some 360mn pesos (US$29.6mn), of which NADB will finance 70mn pesos, according to BECC project documents. The local government will provide the rest of the funds for the initiative, which aims to improve air quality in the city.

Work includes paving 100 streets in the city's central and southern districts, amounting to a total of 943,000m2 of roadways.

Construction is scheduled to begin in June and will take 24 months to complete.
