These projects include nine (9) bridges widening from one (1) lane to two (2) lanes with a total budget of 170.4 million pesos under DPWH C.Y. 2015 Infrastructure Program.
These vital lateral structures are the Bag-ot Bridge and Cabatuan Bridge located in Gamay; Magtaon Bridge, Mapno Bridge., and Tinampo Bridge in Palapag; Moperet Br., Manaybanay Br., Mamhot Br., and Naliwatan Br., all located under the municipality of Mapanas.
