Vallarta Malecon remodeling to begin mid-November

By Tribune Travel

The rehabilitation of Puerto Vallarta’s Malecon is delayed due to the passage of hurricane Lidia, as well as the effects of other meteorological phenomena. However, they could begin in mid-November of this year.

The investment amounts to more than 4 million pesos, including the rehabilitation and lighting, and the resource is earmarked from the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (ZOFEMAT) fund.

It is worth remembering that the first and second sections of Puerto Vallarta’s Malecon were damaged by hurricane Lidia, so that the city’s main attraction woke up on October 11th with dozens of trees lying on the pedestrian walkway and some lights that succumbed to the wind gusts.

In the first section of the malecon there were more than five fallen trees, which were already being removed early Wednesday morning; while in the second section of the malecon the waves caused rocks of all sizes to reach the pedestrian area, in addition to the fact that some lights were knocked down.

But before the hurricane hit, the boardwalk already had problems due to lack of maintenance, especially in the prefabricated concrete decks, most of which are damaged, giving a bad image to the destination.
