President Rodrigo Duterte today, July 25 led the inauguration of the Candon City Bypass Road in the Province of Ilocos Sur.
“The 7-kilometer bypass road is expected to decongest traffic along Manila North Road and the northern municipalities in Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Abra,” the government said.
The bypass road shall also reduce travel time between the municipalities of Sta. Lucia and Santiago in Ilocos Sur from 40 minutes to 20 minutes.
“Likewise, the Candon City Bypass Road shall benefit an estimated 13,000 motorists per day and is envisioned to promote the economic activities on the eastern part of the city by enhancing economic connections between Ilocos Sur and its neighboring provinces,” the government added.
