Hola jerezano, I was wondering what you ment by Mar to Mar hghway, I thought this was just from Mazatlan to Durango..also you mention this being an alternitive to the Panama Canal? I can think of other places where distances are much shorter...suerte
According to official government statements it is expected that the Mar to Mar highway will be completed by the end of this year--2010. Apparently the big problem seems to be that spectacular bridge which is now under construction and is expected to be completed sometime around October? Anyway, the federal government is rushing to complete the job by the end of this year. We all know that there are construction problems which could delay the completion. The government knows that too and is doing all things possible to prevent the delay. So, we just wait and see.
My own expectation is that the highway will be completed probably in the first quarter of 2011. Is this just wishful thinking? Perhaps. Meanwhile, because of the economic importance of the highway completion and that the whole idea is to provide an alternative to the Panama Canal and that the government is willing to expend the effort and the money to accomplish that idea, I, personally, can only trust that all effort will be made to complete by the end of 2010.
As ever, jerezano.
