The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the rehabilitation of the access road with slope protection in Barangay Nagyubuyuban this city and an asphalt overlay project in Pangasinan province in time for the rainy season. In a statement issued on Friday, DPWH Ilocos Region information officer Esperanza Tinaza said the rehabilitation of the access road with slope protection has a 50-meter road with a five-meter width and involved a three-barrel reinforced concrete box culvert to control water flow and prevent erosion on the newly paved roads. ‘In addition to the construction of the reinforced concrete box is the continuation of paving roads connecting to the newly paved roads with slope protection works to improve transportation and mitigate risks like landslides and erosion, fostering a secure and connected community,’ she said. With a total cost of PHP4.7 million, the project was funded under the General Appropriations Act of 2023. ‘The infrastructure improvement enhances the movement of goods, boosts economic activity, and ensures road safety for residents in Sitio Calaungan, Barangay Nagyubuyuban,’ Tinaza said. Likewise, she said the project also ensures the overall safety and convenience of motorists and residents living in the area by providing easier access to local products and for residents going to their respective destinations. Meanwhile, the DPWH has also completed the newly asphalted road in Alcala town, Pangasinan. Tinaza said the implementation of preventive maintenance projects helps the residents, commuters, and motorists from Barangay Poblacion East, Poblacion West, San Juan, and San Vicente, as well as the nearby villages and municipalities, to have easier, safer, and better access to the road. ‘The road improvement project, covering the two lanes with 1.125-kilometer and with a total project cost of PHP14 million funded under the General Appropriations Act of 2023, was completed on March 28 this year,’ she said. Both projects were completed in time for the rainy season.
