I had no idea Mexico had such nice roads. They look better than many of the roads in the States! They look surprisingly clean and well-kept.

Puente Tampico reminds me of the Anzac Bridge in Sydney.

Great. Some lanes look rather narrow, others seem excessively wide. But beautiful. All.

Definitely much better than most European and US roads !

Does anyone have pics of high-elevation Mexican roads--such as the roads climbing Mt. Popocatepetl ??

How do you pay tolls in Mexico? You get a ticket at the onramp, and enter a tollbooth when you exit? Or are there just tollbooths on certain distances?

Just tollbooths every certain distances.

Well, now I will show you other type of toll-roads in Mexico.

It is used to go to small cities or places with very small traffic. It has the highway standards, (all exits are at a different level, they have almost no curves, etc), but it is a 1.5 lane road (that means a big lane and a big shoulder.)

For example, the Morelia-Lazaro Cardenas road. It goes through the Sierra Madre del Sur and it has many bridges and a tunnel.

Belisario Dominguez bridge, in the Tuxtla Gutierrez-Chiapa de Corzo-San Cristobal de las Casas highway, in Chiapas.



Matamoros-Reynosa highway



Right now, the Mazatlan-Durango highways is being built. The first kilometers are now open to the traffic.

The highway includes the Baluarte Bridge. The construction of the bridge has already started, I think.
