There’s been a lot of digging, dust, concrete, and cobblestones going on in Centro lately. For weeks the street has been torn up on Vincente Guerrero from Barragán to about Serdan. The idea has been to create a pleasant walking corridor from the cruise ship terminal to the Plazuela Machado. Above is a picture of Constitución taken from the corner of the Plazuela Machado.
Now the work has continued on Calle Constitución from the Plazuela Machado a block or two the other side of Benito Juárez. It’s a mess! The picture below is looking across Benito Juárez.
The paper said that Constitución is going to be paved with cobblestones – I hope it will be a continuation of the same stones they used in the Plazuela Machado.
The work also goes for several blocks on Carnaval – my understanding is the tourist corridor is being developed to run from the Plazuela Machado to the main mercado. Click on the thumbnail below to see a panorama with Pedro & Lola’s on the left, Calle Carnaval, Calle Constitución, and on the right the Plazuela.
I’m happy to see all this work caring for what I consider Mazatlán’s most important attraction – it’s lovely Centro Historico.
