On Monday going north there were several huge signs along the hightway announcing the Hermo bypass.  When I got to the entrance it was still blocked with traffic cones.  Today on my way back south, there were still more huge signs with  big arrows.  This is just south of the toll booth.  The north entrance was still blocked with traffic cones but there was a police car parked there as well.  Later, when I got to the south entrance, there were several police cars next to the traffic cones so at that point, I decided that they must be there to open the road at a signal from someone or maybe they were there waiting for the governor to make a speech to open the road.  In any case, I think it is safe to conclude that if the bypass isn't open today, it will be tomorrow.  Hurray!!

There are huge signs south of the toll booth but the general idea is that will turn off the main highway at blvd Morales to head west.  Then after 1/2 mile or so, you will make a U-turn and then head back towards the highway.  It is all very will marked.  Eventually you will cross over the highway, loop around and will be back on the highway heading back NORTH.  Almost immediately afterwards you will come to the entrance to the new bypass road on your right.  Take that.  Eventually you will reenter the main highway about 5 miles south of Hermosillo.  



The new bypass makes a loop well to the EAST of Hermosillo.

Eventually there will be a new overpass that will allow you to enter the bypass directly but for now you will need to to the Morales U-turn route.  Immediately south of the toll booth, there is a road running of to the west but that is not it.  It is the 2nd road to the right after the toll booth, maybe 1 1/2-2 miles south of the toll booth.   There are many LARGE signs so it shouldn't be a problem.

The goerness inagurated Proyecto Puente today May 14th
$200 m pesos was the estimated budget, and the 36 km toll highway came in at $750
Its 2 lanes, akes off SE from the new toll station just south of the old toll booth, traveling around the east side of the the main resavoir, going through the Ind Park and rejoins the highway just south of town.
$74 was the estimated toll for this concession but they are not confirming that rate yet.

41 km in length, toll will be 113 pesos, it is supposed to save 40 minutes. According to El Imparcial.

Hmm...I think the estimate by El Imparcial writers may be exaggerated a little.
It only takes me 30 minutes to drive through HMO (not the Periferico); I have timed it many times.
So it may save me 20 minutes to take the new bypass?


It will be nice to try it and see.

I agree, no way will it save 40 minutes. I make it through in 25 to 30 minutes at the most. But, it should save a great deal of frustration.

I drove the new bypass coming down this morning and what a genuine delight, versus going through Hermosillo.  Lots of places to pass, two wide lanes with reasonable shoulder.  No entry or exit access the entire length, except some of the private farms/ranches.  No services of any kind at this time.  The toll booths are open at the toll plaza, but most of the other structures being built at the plaza are still under construction.  It is 113 pesos for a car, didn't really look at the other fees.  I have always considered 30 minutes from the Hermosillo toll booth to the last stop light on the south side of town to be making fairly good time.  I checked closely today, from the Hermosillo toll booth to the ramp getting on 15 south of Hermosillo took me 25 minutes.  That includes the toll stop and the detour route getting on the bypass south of the Hermosillo toll booth.

I have also consistently needed 30 min to get across Hermosillo in either direction.  It appears that time saved will be around 10 min so the time saved is negligible on the basis of the 5 hr drive to/from the border.  The trade-off is the toll vs avoiding the traffic/signals that one must deal with going through town. 



The heavy trucks might use the bypass north bound but coming south, they would have a real problem with the U-turn on Morales.

The bypass should be a lot more convenient for RV's and those towing. When will the detour be eliminated?

To eliminate the detour, a new overpass has to be built.  They have not started work on it yet so it will be a long time before it is finished.

Took the bypass south on my way to Navojoa. Cost was $113 pesos. Follow the signs as it will take you thru a u-turn. It is single lane well paved highway bypass. Took it around noon.  Took 20 minutes to get to the south end. Well worth it and time saver. You will bypass all the traffic.
