Old Puertocitos road getting flatter.

Driving down and back this past week, there are two stretches of construction near
the south part of the old road right before you hit the newer road south. They have about two dozen or more vados dug up putting pipes in along with a couple new major puentes. Neither section is more than a couple miles and the temp road is pretty good. Sorry if this has been posted before but it was a surprise to me when we come up on it, hadn't seen anything about it here.

Good to hear it's been a bad section of road for twenty years or more years, it has been patched many times with little long term solution.

Sounds like the new inland route we have heard about, to replace the 1983 route that was put along the coast? The inland route was made in the 1950s from the sulfur mine south...
