MANILA, Philippines — Construction of a major highway in the province of La Union is now underway to decongest traffic in the area, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said on Wednesday.

Elpidio Paragas, District Engineer of DPWH–La Union, said the P130 million San Fernando Bypass Road Extension project would be 4.2 kilometers long and would connect the San Fernando Bypass Road and the Manila North Road at Barangay (village) Ili Sur, San Juan, in La Union.

The road extension will also traverse several villages, including Biday, Bancusay, Naguituban, Urbiztondo, and Ili Sur. The project is expected to be completed in 2009, he added.

“With the San Fernando Bypass Road Extension, motorists can travel in a safe and convenient manner, ensuring satisfaction among our stakeholders, through our thriving city and province,” Paragas said.
