San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte—The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) 2nd district engineering district said they have completed all the road-widening project along the Manila North Road in the province’s second district.

DPWH 2nd engineering district chief Engr. Mathias Malenab said the national road project along their territorial jurisdiction is fully completed and is now open to the public.

He, however, disclosed that an ongoing road-widening project along parts of Badoc, Ilocos Norte is a project of the DPWH regional office.

With the completion, Mr. Malenab said their ongoing projects for now includes bridges, roads, flood control, school buildings, and multi-purpose buildings among others.

Mr. Malenab also stressed that he already made a reportorial notice as required by the Commission on Elections. The notice states that all the ongoing projects were bid out prior to the March 25 election ban.

Meanwhile, the DPWH engineer said his office is open to all with regards to suggestions, queries, concerns and comments on ongoing projects within their jurisdiction. This also applies to DPWH national and regional projects as long as they are in the province’s second district.

He intimated that he endorsed two text messages complaining about the dust from an ongoing road rehabilitation project along Brgy. 19 (San Lorenzo) in this town. He said the dust is a form of air pollution. He endorsed the complaint to the Project Management Office (PMO). The PMO’s satellite office in the province immediately acted through the project contractor by watering the affected area. The project in question is a regional DPWH project.

Mr. Malenab said this shows that the DPWH is not only concerned with their projects but also with the public that may be affected by them.
