The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has been conducting major road works on Rizal Avenue, a major road in Olongapo City that is part of the National Highway, from the public market to the Ulo ng Apo rotunda for the past few weeks. According to DPWH, the job aims to prevent the impending deterioration of the road due to wear and tear.

“Marami na kasing mga ‘scalings’ o lumalabas na bato mula sa konkreto ng kalsada. Marami na ring mga bitak ang kalsada. Kapag pumasok ang tubig sa mga bitak na ito, lalambot at masisira ang pundasyon o ang ‘base course’ ng konkreto at magiging uneven ang surface ng kalsada.’ explained Armando Alqueza, project manager ng DPWH.

To avoid congestion, the repairs are being done in parts. The road can be used after a week of the concrete overlay.

Funded by Senator Richard Gordon’s ‘Priority Development Assistance Fund’ (PDAF), the project started on May and is expected to be finished by the end of July.

Alqueza explained that the fund for the repairs is provided by the national government and cannot be used for repairs of barangay roads due to legal limitations.
