Sinaloa to invest US$113mn in state highways during 2011 (Mexico)

Mexico's northwestern Sinaloa state government will invest 1.6bn pesos (US$133mn) in highway construction and repairs during 2011, according to state governor Mario López Valdez.

The state plans to tender 50mn pesos' worth of construction projects to repair access to beaches before the Easter vacation week, López said.

The governor made the remarks at a ceremony to open a 6km highway stretch from La Despensa to San Pablo and kick off construction of another 6km stretch from San Pablo to Jitzámuri, the state government said in a release.

Both stretches are part of a project to complete the Jitzámuri-Bolsas de Tosalibampo I y II highway network and link to the El Carrizo international highway.

The government authorized construction to begin on a 14km stretch of the highway linking Sinaloa with neighboring Chihuahua state on March 4, López added.
