Construction progress on the Guadalajara – Puerto Vallarta highway bypass has reached San José del Valle. The bypass, spanning from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to Ixtapa, is currently near the road from San José del Valle to Valle de Banderas.

It involves soil compaction and land clearing, mainly on the left side. The route will extend to Jardines del Sol, marking the last junction in Bahía de Banderas. The plan includes exits to El Caimán trails and Highway 544 in Puerto Vallarta, featuring pillars for a bridge near the prison.

Since January 2023, the construction has progressed, focusing on layout preparation. The upcoming steps include concrete pouring and the installation of structures and pillars for bridges. The 32.2-kilometer bypass aims to reduce travel time to Vallarta airport by 25 minutes, with an unknown completion date.
