Except that it will be across the river. The new route is going to be signed as Coahuila Rte 20 and it will connect the village of Boquillas del Carmen to the rest of Mexico by paved highway. I translated the article below using Google Translate. If you wish to view the original spanish article you can here.  http://periodicoeltiempo.mx/region/inaugura-rmv-pavimentacion-la-pena-boquillas-del-carmen/ 20 kilometers out of 56 kms has been completed.
