Quiñonez explained to that "... The first overpass we are going to work on is the one at the entrance to Zapote, in zone 2, which will have an important impact because every day there are traffic jams to enter the Zapote sector, where there are universities and industrial and housing sectors."

According to the mayor, this new overpass will complement the one installed during 2019 in Martí Street and 13th Avenue in zone 6.

The head of the municipality added that "... in that same street (Martí), specifically at the entrance to the San Antonio neighborhood, another overpass will be built during the coming months."
