Culiacán, Sinaloa.- Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel dedicated all morning this Wednesday to oversee the construction work of four collectors currently being built at different points in the city of Culiacán, which are the Agustina Ramírez, the Arroyo del Piojo, Los Mezcales and the Adolfo López Mateos, whose works will come to solve the flood problems of several popular colonies and where 389 million pesos are invested as a whole. Accompanied by the Secretary of Public Works, Osbaldo López Angulo, the state representative first arrived at the Infonavit Humaya colony, but before overseeing the work of collector Agustina Ramírez, he visited the Humaya Supplies Market, to greet customers and locals, who several of these traders thanked them for the support they gave them last year to deal with the damage they had from the floods that affected their trades.
Soon Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel walked through the area of the work of collector Agustina Ramírez, from the Mexico International Highway 15 on the side of the market itself, to the Isssteesin colony, passing through the Infonavit Humaya, where he could see an 80 percent advance in such works. Then the state representative headed to the northern sector of the city, to visit the work of the collector of the Arroyo del Piojo, in the colony 6 de Enero, which itself is a relief work of 35 percent of the flow of said stream, to reduce the risk of flooding in the surrounding colonies, such as The Lombardo Toledano, Los Alamitos, Las Cucas, Juan de Dios Bátiz, El Mirador and 16 September, which have historically suffered these affectations in rainy season.
