The criteria for the awards include leadership, contribution to the community, innovations, public/private partnerships, environmental protection and enhancement, response to societal needs, and financial viability. Throughout the program’s history, all types of projects have been recognized for their excellence, including office, residential, recreational, urban/mixed-use, industrial/office park, commercial/retail, new community, rehabilitation, and public projects and programs.

El Gobierno de Jalisco anunció que se ha renovado, hasta la fecha, el 50% de su red estatal como parte de su Plan Carretero 2019-2024, el cual fue diseñado a partir de tres ejes: seguridad, conectividad y desarrollo regional.

Hasta el momento se han invertido 8 mil 766 millones de pesos de recursos estatales aunados a los 2 mil 674 millones del presupuesto de la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) para la renovación del 80% de la red estatal que se localizaba en estado crítico y 6 nuevas carreteras que mejorarían la articulación regional de Jalisco.

“Dentro de nueve meses, habremos alcanzado el objetivo de tener en buenas condiciones 70% de la red carretera estatal en tan solo dos años de gobierno [..] Pasamos de 80% en mal estado, a 70% en buen estado”, comentó Alfaro Ramírez, gobernador de Jalisco, hace 1 año. Sin embargo, ese objetivo no se logró.

De las 6 nuevas carreteras, 4 de ellas se frenaron por los recortes federales del 2020; los tramos que se suspendieron fueron Santa Rosa-La Barca, El Tuito-Melaque, tramo de la ruta Villa Purificación-Autlán y parte de la carretera a Colotlán. 

Y las que continuaron con su construcción fueron Jiquilpan-Guadalajara, el tramo de Tizapán el Alto, y la parte del crucero a Tapalpa de la carretera de Acatlán-Ciudad Guzmán; las cuales tuvieron un costo de más de 90 millones de pesos.

El proyecto planea mejorar los 6 mil 617 kilómetros de carreteras públicas del estado, de las cuales más del 60% corresponden a la red estatal y lo restante a la federal, las cuales tienen un flujo anual de 62 millones de personas según datos de la SCT. El Plan Carretero 2019-2024 conectará los 125 municipios de Jalisco con otros estados, como Aguascalientes y presupone un crecimiento económico para toda la zona.
