Durango-Mazatlan Highway

Puente Baluarte or The Baluarte Bridge

Did you know that the Durango-Mazatlan highway is one of the most important and ambitious road projects of President Felipe Calderón’s administration? The Durango-Mazatlan highway, a project that will change the economic life among the northern states of the country, is a piece of infrastructure that has created more than 60 tunnels and over 115 bridges along the road. The Durango highway is one of the most sophisticated and complicated to have been built in the history of Mexico by the orography that it must cross and plans are to open it at the end of 2012. The Baluarte Bridge (El Puente Baluarte) is a well-known part of the project, and is a cable-stayed bridge. It is located over the border between the states of Sinaloa and Durango, along the Durango-Mazatlan highway and will be one of the main attractions for those interested in viewing the new, sophisticated Durango-Mazatlan highway.
