Northern Mindanao Travel Advisory

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Larapan Bridge connecting Kauswagan and Linamon towns in Lanao del Norte has not been restored yet making it impassable until today (January 16, 2014). The Larapan Bridge at Brgy. Napo, Lanao del Norte collapsed when hit at about 8:30 p.m. by rampaging flood waters last January 13, 2014. DPWH Region 10 Director Evelyn Barroso ordered the immediate construction of temporary bridge using bailey panels which started yesterday and will be completed within seven (7) days. The bridge which is targeted to be opened to traffic on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 will be opened for light vehicles only. We are appealing the support and understanding of the public for this inconvenience.
