NEWS - Federal Government Spending $30 Million

ROSARITO BEACH, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO---The federal government this year has allocated about $30 million for improvements to make the scenic road from Tijuana to Ensenada safer and more attractive, according to Rosarito Mayor Hugo Torres.

 "This significant investment will make the beautiful road more comfortable for both daily users and the tourists who use it,” Torres said. “It will make one of the most beautiful stretches of coastal highway in the world safer and even more attractive.” The funds are federal investment resources of the National Infrastructure Fund (Fonadin), which has worked closely with business groups in Tijuana, Rosarito and Ensenada and local authorities.


The approximately 60-mile stretch of road extends from Tijuana to Ensenada, much of it in mountain areas with stunning, panoramic views of the ocean, beaches, villages and coastline.  "Eventually we will have a better road, so we hope that users will make good use of it and report any problems they encounter," Torres said. “The panoramic views it offers are beloved by many of visitors.”
