The Wall Street Journal: Mexico’s López Obrador cancels $13 billion Mexico City airport project

Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador said his government will cancel Mexico City’s $13.3 billion airport that is under construction, and instead build a terminal and two runways at a military base north of the capital.

The decision followed a controversial four-day public consultation launched by López Obrador in which about 70% of the slightly more than one million people who voted opted for the alternative project.

López Obrador, who campaigned in favor of the alternative and is due to take office Dec. 1, said the proposal will solve the saturation of the existing airport in three years.
