Road work has commenced improving the road to Playa Zancudo. A layer of ballast is being put down in order to prepare for paving. Current plans are for the paving to continue from Conte to the start of the beach road paralleling the ocean. The last four kilometers will be a fine gravel. The residence will tell you the primary benefit is the elimination of the very dusty effect of the road during the dry season when many can be heard with a pronounced cough. This road work is also a vital part of the effort to increase tourism.
