    Work Concluded In Puente De Baeza And Open To The Vehicle Circulation Calle José Mujica
    Once again, José Mujica Street was opened to vehicular traffic, which for more than two months remained closed, due to the restructuring work on the Baeza Bridge located on the road artery.

    This work is one of the most important of the 2018-2021 Administration, since it translates into direct benefits for both the inhabitants of the city and visitors, not only in the aesthetic impact but also because of its vehicular and historical importance.

    The work was authorized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) throughout the construction process and intervention work always taking into account the rescue, rehabilitation and restoration of the elements in the place.

    The works included the replacement of the pavements and stonework, the structure of the slopes of the ravine, the injection of the walls to support the vault, as well as the sewing of cracks inside the bridge. Today we work on the perimeter fence of the bridge to tie it with the fence of Benito Juárez Park.
