The Department of Public Works and Highyways (DPWH) is pushing for the completion of Almeria Bypass Road in Biliran Province before the end of the year.
DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar said that the ongoing 1.262-kilometer bypass road project with 2-meter bridge is now under second and final phase and is being fast-tracked by the DPWH Biliran District Engineering Office (DEO).
As reported by DPWH Biliran DEO District Engineer David P. Adongay Jr., the Almeria Bypass Road which starts at Sitio Daro all the way to Upper Look in Almeria town will be benefiting motorists by the fourth quarter of 2020, said Secretary Villar.
The Almeria Bypass Road Project is divided into two (2) contracts with Phase 1 covering road opening, slope protection, bridge construction and a road concreting of 879-meter, four lane road costing P83.1 Million while Phase 2 of the project includes a 383-meter four-lane road concreting costing P12.7 Million.
The project was prioritized in lieu of the road widening project on the main highway of Almeria where numerous residents will be affected.
Expect a wider and safer road and bridge when travelling in Almeria town as soon as this project will be completed,” said DE Adongay.
