Villa de Álvarez-Minatitlán road closed

Work on the Villa de Álvarez to Minatitlán road has stopped until weather conditions improve. The work has been a stabilization project on some dangerous areas. There is a bypass from Rastrojitos to El Sauz San Antonio but it's very narrow and not for a weak stomach.
