  • Contract term:
    May 2008 - May 2038

Concession company: Viaducto Elevado Bicentenario, S.A. de C.V.

Description of the concession

The Bicentennial Viaduct is an elevated highway that runs over the Períferico Norte of the Metropolitan Area up to kilometer 44 of the Mexico-Queretaro Highway with a total length of 32 km.

The project is structured in three phases: Phase I, currently in operation on a reversible basis, consists of 22-km viaduct between ex Toreo and Tepalcapa. Phase II, with 5-km in operation, consisting of a second viaduct alongside the existing one and, in Phase III, the two viaducts will be extended 10 kilometers.

Benefits for society

The infrastructure is part of a high-technology network of highways that are intended to integrate several areas in the north of the metropolitan region of the Valley of Mexico with the central section of the Anillo Periférico beltway around Mexico City.

In comparison to an average speed at peak hours that dropped to 15 km/h on this section of the Anillo Periférico, the Bicentennial Viaduct offers significant savings in travel times and in the emission of pollutant gases due to vehicle congestion. In addition, the entire roadway is equipped with LED lighting fed by photovoltaic modules, thereby contributing to minimizing the environmental impact.
