CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY: The national government is set to build P1.7 billion worth of projects in the city in the next three years.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) on Tuesday said these projects include the construction of four bridges and four interchanges.
Leowald Pacore, an engineer at the regional office of the DPWH, said that the ongoing project at the Bitan-ag Creek project has an allocation of P75 million.
Under the said project, the clogged up box culvert at the creek will be removed and replaced by a 14-meter long bridge with an elevation of 1.85 meters. This will pave the way for the efficient flow of water in the said creek.
In addition, another 12-meter long bridge at the Sapang Creek located along the national highway would be elevated by one meter in order to replace the old box culvert.
Pacore said other infrastructure projects in the city include the 10-kilometer, 30-meter wide roadway of the JR Borja Extension in the city’s east district.
The said road project has an initial cost of P70 million which will start from the junction of Galaxy and would pass through the front of Nestle Philippines toward the Sayre Highway going to Bukidnon.
