    Starting Monday March 2 there will be street closures in Colonia San Antonio; they will resurface
    There will be avenues closing in the San Antonio neighborhood in San Miguel de Allende for works that will be carried out on site, for you to take your precautions.

    On Monday, March 2, Public Works will begin warning that they will close several streets of the San Antonio neighborhood to resurface the streets. They will start with Plaza San Antonio (Pípila section to Callejón de San Antonio) and Avenida Allende street (Orizaba section to Callejón de San Antonio), there ...
    This Monday there will be street closures in Colonia San Antonio; they will resurface (sp).
    As of today, there is an advance of 30 percent in the repaving works of Plaza San Antonio street (section Pípila to Callejón de San Antonio) and Avenida Allende street (section Orizaba to Callejón de San Antonio) in the San Antonio neighborhood.

    This work is in charge of the Infrastructure and Public Works Directorate and the actions carried out are the removal of the current pavement from both streets, ditching for the SAPASMA ductwork on Allende Avenue, changes of the old and new drainage, as well as the intakes of water, having 48 in Allende street and 5 in Plaza de San Antonio.

    The work consists of paving boxes, trench excavations for drinking water lines, laying of material, paving in cobblestone, ball stone drowned in mortar, road signs, hydraulic installation work and the formation of sidewalks. With an investment of over 2 million 300 thousand pesos in materials, labor and machinery.

    For this reason, road alternatives continue in the area to speed up vehicular circulation. For these works, there will be street closings in Tinajitas, Callejón de San Antonio, Pípila and Potrero.

    In addition, the same recommendations given by the Directorate of Infrastructure and Public Works to transit the area are maintained: prevent the parking of personal vehicles off-site, as well as the trucks and vans that supply services at home (gas, purified water, among others), respect the signs and limits of work, as well as the use of mouth masks, if necessary.
