Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto will make this fifth visit to Mazatlán, and his seventh to Sinaloa, next week.
Sinaloa Governor López Valdez announced the President would arrive on Wednesday, April 29. At 11:30am he will inaugurate the Libramiento Mazatlán, the Mazatlán bypass toll road that opened to traffic in December last year.
The road which connects in the north to the Culiacán-Mazatlán autopista and in the east to the Mazatlán-Durango highway includes yet-to-be constructed three kilometer feeder roads to the airport and the city.
The Governor said at the press conference that they now have authorization to construct the airport road.
