The Civil Protection and Fire Department of Jalisco works in coordination with the Secretariat of Infrastructure and Public Works to try to make the route to Puerto Vallarta passable.
The closures began last Wednesday as a result of several landslides from kilometers 43 to 52, reason why the passage of vehicles have been restricted from Las Palmas to the municipality of Mascota.
So far the SIOP makes the plugging of a tunnel in the kilometer 51 + 700 that represents risk to motorists and whose work is expected to last 15 days, so a diversion route will be constructed to allow the passage of the vehicles.
