Recently, it was announced that the new Puerto Vallarta – Guadalajara highway could be completed by October 2020, as currently, the works of its third and last stage show a progress of more than 90 percent construction.

Grupo Carso is in charge of developing this last phase, which consists of 86 kilometers and will integrate three tunnels with ventilation system and high safety standards.

So far, two of these three spectacular tunnels show great progress and their main characteristics are:

El Guamúchil

Located very close to a town in Riviera Nayarit which shares its name, the length of this tunnel will be 1,100 meters.

Bueyes

At 540 meters long, this tunnel will pass very close to Sayulita, Nayarit.

The third tunnel doesn’t have an official name yet or confirmed length but will pass right next to El Guamúchil.

In addition, the progress at the Las Truchas bridge continues, an infrastructure of 300 meters long and 75 meters high that will connect Las Varas with Compostela, Nayarit.

Once the construction of approximately 179 kilometers comprising this road is completed, which includes the Jala – Compostela (54 km), Compostela – Las Varas (39 km) and Las Varas – Banderas Bay (86 km) sections; Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara will be a short 2 and a half hours drive away.
