Vintar, Ilocos Norte—This town will soon have a bridge that will connect its poblacion area with barangays on the other side of the Bislak River.

Rep. Rodolfo “Rudy” C. FariƱas (Ilocos Norte, 1st district) initiated the project with an estimated fund of PHP300 million.

Vintar vice mayor Amado Victor R. Racimo Jr. made the announcement.

He said the Dept. if Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is conducting soil testing for the project. He said the bridge will measure at least 320 meters.

The bridge will connect Vintar’s poblacion area to Brgys. Alsem, Salsalamagi, PF Alviar, Abkir, Columbia, Cabisuculan, Malampa and Manarang, all located north of the Bislak River.

Brgy. Abkir kagawad Jojo Cumlat said that during the rainy season, barangays on the other side of the river can not pass through the river.

Isu ngarud ta kakaasi kami nukwan a taga amianan iti karayan ta saan min a madalanen gapu iti kadakkelen iti danum isu tay magna kamin idiay Bacarra a sumalpot kadagiti bar-barangay nga adda iti amianan iti karayan,” Mr. Cumlat said.

Ket sakam lang makapagna nukwan awan todo na ta adda dagiti dadakkel a lusob a mabalin a pagnaan nukwa iti danum iti karayan ken mabalin metten a pagdalanan dagiti babassit a lugan,” he added.   

Vintar trading centers
Meanwhile, Vintar mayor Larisa C. Foronda announced that they will establish trading centers across the Bislak River.

Mrs. Foronda said the new project aims to cater to all of the barangays in the area with Brgy. Abkir as the display center. The said barangay is in the middle of the area, thus it is more accessible than other areas.

Aside from Abkir, she said they also plan to set up trading centers at Surong Valley, and to revive the satellite market at Pallas Valley.

They allocated PHP2 million for each satellite market. The funding will come from their share of the RA 7171 fund.
