New highway from Oaxaca City to Huatulco??

Does anyone know if the new highway between Oaxaca and Huatulco is completed yet? or, what the projected completion date is? We would like to drive in November with 2 small children, but it sounds like the road is very windy and provokes car sickness. I am hoping the new highway will be better. Thanks!! Gerry

Our governor has pledged that all highway projects to the coast will be completed by the end of 2014. More specifically, there are portions unofficially open on the new Huatulco highway, but that's about it. For this November you'll have to use the old #190. Anti-nausea meds are a must if anyone has a weak stomach. On the other hand, #175 is progressing well, with long stretches bypassing towns and cities, but once you hit the mountains you'll have the same issue.
