Detour Road in Lieu of Closed Lucao Bridge - DPWH

By Mortz C. Ortigoza
DAGUPAN CITY – Commuters and motorists bound to this city from western part of Pangasinan have to take the detour road as the Lucao Bridge is being reconstructed.
District Engineer Elpidio Paragas, chief of the 2nd Highway Engineering District of the Department of Public Works & Highway, said the construction of the bridge is part of about P135 million allocation to his office this year by the national government.
He said the closure of the bridge started in the first week of this month.
“On going ang mga tulay dito sa Lingayen, San Jose Bridge, Mangalanday Bridge, Dagupan City-San Fabian Quiray Bridge. Tapos na iyong controversial Longos Bridge (that connects Dagupan City and San Fabian). Iyong Quiray Bridge sa Aguilar (Pangasinan).
He said the detour road is up to Lucao Elementary School where it connects to an old road and then to the De Venecia Highway.
Meanwhile, Mayor Belen Fernandez here deplored the sloppy work on the white painting of the pedestrian lanes on the recently constructed P49 million road elevation at the AB Fernandez Avenue here.
“Gawa ata sa kalburo (calcium carbide) kaya nag fade kaagad,” she said told media men after her State of the City Address.

But Paragas rebutted it.
He said the multi-million peso road elevation was contracted by the DPWH to Nelson Sotto – a friend of the mayor and of Representative Gina de Venecia (4th District, Pangasinan).
“Thermoplastic iyan, hindi nabubura iyan. Kaya lang nadumihan. Puweding i-brush para maibalik sa dati. Hind lang nila alam iyan,” he said.
