State authorities launched Monday the statewide street rehabilitation program that seeks to improve traffic in all seven municipalities in Baja California.
The project includes 110 million pesos or close to $5.5 million. Of those funds the state plans to invest 6.8 million pesos.
The program started with the rehabilitation of about three miles of Independencia Avenue in Colonia Nueva Esperanza neighborhood, from the New River Boulevard to Eleventh Street.
State Secretary of Infrastructure and Urban Development Arturo Espinoza said streets with high traffic volume will be rehabilitated. In Mexicali, the agency plans to rehabilitate the Santa Isabel Highway, Eleventh Street and Third Street, among others.
