A portion of the Alaminos-San Pablo City bypass road in Laguna will be opened to motorists next month, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

During an inspection in Alaminos, Laguna on Tuesday, Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar said that the 2.85-kilometer section of the 12.83-kilometer Alaminos-San Pablo City bypass road is set to open on March 15.

“This may only be just a small portion of the 12.83-kilometer Alaminos-San Pablo City Bypass Road but this marks the non-stop efforts of the Department to improve road network to support underdeveloped areas,” Villar said.

“The entire Alaminos-San Pablo City Bypass Road with five bridge components is envisioned to cut travel time by as much as 20-40 minutes, thereby improving mobility between the two towns of Laguna,” he added.

The DPWH said that it has completed the 4-kilometer road opening and 1.63-kilometer road concreting of the bypass road under CY 2016, while the 1.22-kilometer road opening, construction of bridges 1, 2, and the 1.92-kilometer road concreting were completed during CY 2017.

It added that the 5.31-kilometer road concreting is also ongoing with thermoplastic pavement markings now 15 percent complete. The construction of another 2.45-kilometer road is also ongoing with line canal now 25 percent complete. The widening of bridges 1 and 2, meanwhile, is now 89 percent complete. 

The DPWH said that the project has received a total allocation of P1.36 billion since 2016 and will require P473 million more in funds to cover the widening of Bridges 3, 4, and 5, and paving of shoulder of the entire bypass road project.
