At the moment the major work is on a tunnel to go under the airstrip, in which the Pan-American Highway --- now temporarily re-routed --- will pass under a shallow and extended modular reinforced concrete arch, built in a trench that is to be covered and partly paved over. The terminal and control tower complex and the airstrip itself are also being built now.
