Tramo de Muerte Repair?

Bajadock: The 2015-16 repair and repavement from Baja Country Club north through Chapultepec Hill was a big improvement.  But, the potholes and rubble from B.C.C. south though Maneadero is dangerous.  

Just spotted the pothole left over from covering up the above road slide in December 2016.  The coverup of dirt over asphalt on the incline southbound, just south of Maneadero’s Calimax is a lane to avoid.

There was a small work of patches on Tramo de Muerte this spring, but, this was a superficial repair.

Yep, I’m using Google Translater.  But, can anyone decipher whattheheck is going on in the last part of the article below my map.  Commission?  Public Works?  Councilor?  Initiative?

Regents of the XXII City Council, approved the creation of a commission to search for resources and repair the so-called “death knell”, because of the risk involved for users and the importance of roads.

The initial regidor, Orlando Toscano Montaño, emphasized that the City does not have the resources to rehabilitate and improve that stretch of the Transpeninsular highway, so it is necessary to resort to different instances for the collection of resources to address the problem.

This commission, he explained, will be in the middle where the regidores that converge with the state, ejidatarios, delegates and other authorities to seek a solution.

“We know that the State Government already has an elaborate project,” he said.
Orlando Toscano lamented that, so far this year, there have been 34 traffic accidents with a fatal victim.

Referring to part of the justifications, mentioned that in the area of ​​Maneadero, there are more than 31 thousand inhabitants, in addition to more than 650 thousand tourists in the area, only for the area of ​​La Bufadora.

He also said that in the Maneadero delegation, the agricultural area, an activity that generates some 5,000 direct jobs, is growing in an area of ​​200 hectares.

The movement of workers and trucks, he added, is permanent.

Toscano Montaño recalled that the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT), ceded the referred section for what is competence maintenance and monitoring.

These conditions make it imperative to repair the artery.

Non-regulation commission
Prior to the vote, the respect Bertha Martínez Villalobos noted that the creation of the commission contravenes municipal regulations.
He also said that the commission would be carrying out actions that are the responsibility of the Public Works and Services Commission (which coordinates).
“The point of agreement has no regulatory basis,” he insisted, after reading the articles.
He also observed that, if approved despite the irregularity, the mayor has the authority to determine and appoint the councilor who should coordinate it.
However, he insisted, “the point of agreement should be dismissed.”
The point of agreement was approved in what corresponds to the creation of the commission, as well as for the councilor Orlando Toscano who coordinates it.
The mayor Cristian Vázquez recognized the initiative of Toscano, but considered that one must be more careful in what corresponds to the attributions of each commission
The governor Bertha Martínez Villalobos, abstained from voting, however, expressed her willingness to work on the newly created commission.

    In essence there are Three Jurisdictions: Federal, State, and Municipal. Responsibility for this part of the highway has been debated for many years. Municipal did the most recent work, but I don’t know the source of the funding.
