This morning I wrote about the "Ecoducto", a pedestrian pathway being constructed in the middle of the "Viaducto Miguel Alemán", one of Mexico City's major crosstown freeways.
This afternoon I left the condo for one of my long walks. The weather is finally back to normal. It was sunny with temperatures warm enough to cast aside the long-sleeve shirts, sweaters, and jackets that I have been wearing. I was strolling down the east side of Insurgentes Avenue. When I got to where the avenue passes over the freeway, I saw that the "Ecoducto" was open on that side also.
However, here the workers were still planting the gardens to either side of the path.
I crossed Chilpancingo Avenue, and more of the path lay ahead.
Along this stretch the gardens seemed to be completed. The workers were putting in the water channels along the path.
I reached Medellin Avenue, and although the "Ecoducto" continued, the orange barrels blocking the way seemed to indicate that I shouldn't continue any further.
Looking back you can see the World Trade Center in the background. Since my condo is just a block away from there, this gives you some idea of how far I had walked... probably about a half mile along Insurgentes Avenue and another half mile along the "Ecoducto".
Again, I think that this is a cool idea, but I will reserve my judgement until I see how well the project is maintained.
