A dream long cherished by thousands of residents and visitors to the region started becoming a reality back on January 29th, when the Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) gave its approval for the construction of the Las Varas-Puerto Vallarta Highway.
This past Thursday, the Reforma website announced that this project grew out of a unsolicited proposal presented by Desarrollo y Empleo en América Latina (IDEAL), owned by Carlos Slim. The highway will be four lanes, will stretch 90.5 km and will be the first highway project of this administration built through a public-private partnerships scheme.
The new highway from Jala to Compostela will be completed in the summer of 2015.Watch movie online Rings (2017)
The projected completion dates for the Compostela-Las Varas and the Las Varas-Puerto Vallarta stretches were not mentioned.
