Share The Article

After weeks of warnings from Governor Carlos Joaquín González, several roads that are vital for transportation around Playa del Carmen are now closed to nighttime traffic.

The city has already implemented closures on several vital roadways. The head of public security, Jorge Robles has explained that these routes will be closed daily from 10:00pm until 1:00am until further notice.

These closures are due to an increase of Covid-19 cases in the area. The governor told citizens the closures must happen in order to prevent further transmission. 

All restrictions have been made in accordance with the Public Security Secretariat on an indefinite level. How long these restrictions will be in place will all depend on numbers and the epidemiological light alert scale. The Playa del Carmen community is hoping the state can avoid reverting back to red light status.

Road closures run as follows:

  • Intersections of Avenida 30 with streets Tercera Sur and avenues Aviación
  • Primera Sur bis
  • Streets 4 – 14

Aside from these new restrictions, Jorge Robles, head of the Public Security office has been in ongoing communication with the public. Encouraging everyone to stay on top of prevention protocols.

“To help reduce the risk of negatively impacting our progress, we have been in steady communication with the public. Reminding everyone of the importance of prevention protocols like correct use of masks, maintaining social distancing and proper hygiene.” Robles explained.

As The Cancun Sun previously reported, road closures like this are also currently happening in Cancun. Local officials encourage everyone to stay positive and patient as the state navigates the ever changing situations with this global pandemic.
