Over the last two decades, Mexico has made impressive investments in order to improve its road infrastructure and connect main cities and towns across the country as its mentioned in Mexico roads map. In spite of its extension and recent development, the roadway network in Mexico is still inadequate to meet the current needs of the population and, except for the toll roads, they are often not adequately maintained.
In the center of the country the roads run into Metro Mexico City from regional centers as you can see in Mexico roads map where there are few roads which run peripherically so as to connect the other regional centers without running through the congestion around the capital. The federal government (in parternship with the government of Mexico State and the Federal District) is trying to fix this problem by constructing a Mexico City bypass, named "Arco Norte"; it is willing to open it by the end of 2008.
The expressways are, for the most part, toll roads or autopistas de cuota as its shown in Mexico roads map. (Non-toll roads are referred to as carreteras libres, of free-roads). No federal freeway or expressway crosses a city; toll expressways are either turned into toll bypasses (libramientos) often used as toll or free ring roads (periféricos), or are transformed into major arterial roads, even if they are, in function, freeways with restricted access.

The highway network in Mexico is classified by number of lanes and type of access, 9,544 km (5,930 miles) are four-lane highways and the rest have 6 or more lanes as its mentioned in Mexico highway map. The great majority of the network is composed of undivided or divided two-lane highways—with or without shoulders, and are known simply as carreteras.
Mexico has had difficulty in building an integrated highway network due to the country orography and landscape characteristics, most of the country is crossed by high-altitude ranges of mountains as you can see in Mexico highway map. Speed limits in two-lane highways can vary depending on terrain conditions.
Mexican highways are assigned a one to three-digit number as its shown in Mexico highway map. North-south highways are assigned odd numbers whereas east-west highways are assigned even numbers. Toll expressways usually run parallel to a free road, and therefore, are assigned the same number with the letter "D" added. (For example, the undivided two-lane highway connecting Mexico City and Puebla is MX 150, whereas the six-lane toll expressway is MX 150D).
