Friday, January 20, 2012 – Malecon Construction Update

Posted by on January 20, 2012

Construction has been proceeding slowly down the Malecon, the seaside of the street has been torn up almost to the statues halfway, while the opposite side has been demolished up to the Sweet Spot restaurant. Cement has started to be poured at the south end, by the Costa Azul hotel and the beginnings of the design can be seen.  Green water pipes are waiting on trailers for the workers to lay them underground, mesh and metal outlines for the sidewalk designs are being laid on the awaiting ground, and the backhoe is steadily moving dirt around.

The old sidewalks are torn up...

The ground is flattened...

Jackhammer loosens old bricks...

Mesh and design outlines are laid in anticipation of the cement...

An idea of the design can be seen in the cement work at the south end

Of course the Malecon is still completely accessible, and stores are open and waiting for you to drop in for a visit. Drive or walk carefully of course, and go down for a look to see how things are progressing. Maybe even stop for a taco or two and support your local businesses! Have a great weekend everybody!

    Thanks for the update, Anita! It’s going to put a distinguished new look on the Malecon!
    Hope we can get down there in the next month! We are REALLY missing San Felipe!
    And next time we MUST get together! We’ll have you out for dinner!

    I’ll be coming down at the end of March with a group of high school kids to paint a school in your town. We love shopping and eating on the Malecon and are happy to hear that the shops and restaurants are still open.

      Will be great to have the high school kids coming down to help paint the school and visit San Felipe! Where will you be coming from? If possible, it would be great to get a photo of the group painting the school for the site, my email is anita@sanfelipe.com.mx if you could send me more info, that would be great!
