77

The State Coordination of Civil Protection and Risk Management (CEPCyGR) informed the population that due to the landslide that occurred on federal highway 175, on the Oaxaca-Ixtlán stretch of the highway, in the Sierra de Juárez region, traffic remains closed.

The agency added that one lane of the road is blocked, so vehicle traffic is slow, and motorists are asked to drive with caution in the area, the Oaxaca government reported in a statement.

In this same sense, a landslide occurred on federal highway 190, on the Oaxaca-Istmo stretch, before reaching San Dionisio Ocotepec; which affects the lane that leads to the city of Oaxaca.

Likewise, it was urged to heed the recommendations of Civil Protection and stay informed through the official media and social networks of the agency and the State Government.
