DAGUPAN CITY – After receiving good reviews for its bay walk project in Lingayen town, the Department of Public Works and Highways is mulling the construction of a coastal road that will connect the provinces of Pangasinan and La Union.
“The coastal road, when approved, will be continued in the town of Binmaley, pass through San Fabian town and will extend to La Union province,” said Bernard Caronongan, information officer of DPWH in the Second Engineering District of Pangasinan during the KBP Forum on Thursday.
The project however, is still under study and subject for approval, he added.
What is clear now, he said, is the extension of the baywalk project in Binmaley town which now has a P200- million funding. This is the fourth phase of the project, he added.
Meanwhile, Engr. Carlo Evangelista of the First Engineering District, said a by-pass road is now in the works for the Alaminos-Bolinao route.
“The 1.7 kilometer by-pass road will help ease the traffic in the main city of Alaminos and will also cut travel time for travellers traversing western Pangasinan,” Evangelista said during the forum.
The by-pass road started its first phase in 2015 with an P88-million funding. Phase 2 this year was funded with P64-million and Phase 3 will be competed in 2017 with a P30-million funding.(VHS/PIA-Pangasinan)
