The SCT implemented various actions to address the effects on the Highway Network to restore vehicular circulation
After the heavy rains in Querétaro, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) implemented various actions to address the effects on the toll-free Highway Network, where the El Pueblito River is located.
