If you have driven around Puerto Peñasco lately, you cannot help but notice all of the construction projects under way. There are new roads, new monuments, cement trucks constantly roaming the streets on the way to work sites, and an overall infrastructure renovation happening all around us.

As part of these efforts, a new overpass is being built on the highway at the intersection of the Sonoyta/Rocky Point and Laguna Shores turnoff. That intersection has been the scene of several serious accidents and the city has decided that an overpass is the best solution for making the intersection safer.

In she short term, this will cause yet another detour (we are used to construction detours by now) but in the bigger picture, it will be certainly allow traffic to move more smoothly and safely through that intersection.
