DPWH Completes P27.6-M Road Improvement Projects In N. Ecija

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has finished PHP27.62-million worth of asphalt overlay projects in Nueva Ecija that will provide smoother, faster, and safer travel to motorists.

District Engineer Elpidio Y. Trinidad, chief of the DPWH-Nueva Ecija 2nd District Engineering Office, said on Wednesday the three completed preventive maintenance projects include the asphalt paving of the Barangay Malapit section of Jose Abad Santos Avenue (JASA) in San Isidro town, and the Barangay Pamaldan and Barangay Caalibangbangan sections of the Cabanatuan-Carmen Road in Cabanatuan City.

“With a combined length of 2.90 kilometers, these projects aim to provide better mobility for motorists and strengthen the existing pavement structure, correct any surface defects incurred over time, and improve pavement serviceability,” Trinidad said in a statement.

The DPWH has been implementing various road improvement projects in Nueva Ecija in support of the government’s goal of enhancing mobility along the areas to boost economic activities.

Last February, the DPWH reported the completion of six improvement road projects that include asphalt overlay and reblocking in the different sections of JASA to prevent early deterioration of the pavements caused by the passage of heavy vehicles.

“Our office is always on the lookout for any road problems, especially on highly traveled and critical road networks such as JASA where high traffic volumes are recorded,” Trinidad said. (PNA)
