The successful construction of the two-lane Burgos-Lidlidda Road that links the interior towns of Burgos and Lidlidda has already been completed, DPWH Region 1 Director Ronnel M. Tan reported to DPWH Secretary Manuel M. Bonoan on Friday, Sept. 23.

The concrete paving of a 388-meter road improves Ilocos Sur’s road network leading to emerging tourist destinations such as the Katayagan View Deck in Lilidda, Simminublan Natural Water Park in Burgos, and an alternate road to Payegpeg Falls in San Emilio, Ilocos Sur.

Tan also reported the reconstruction of the new Palali Norte Bridge in the Municipality of Sta. Lucia which provides wider and safer access to motorists in Barangay Palali Norte.

It involves the construction of a higher flat-slab bridge with a width of 8.22-meters and a 20-meter approach on both sides.

The Burgos-Lidlidda Road and the widened Palali Norte Bridge were constructed by DPWH Ilocos Sur Second District Engineering Office (DEO) with a total funding of P12.28 million and P4.9 million from the 2021 and 2022 General Appropriations Act, respectively.

“DPWH is committed to building better projects nationwide to stimulate economic activities with the end in mind of improving the lives of our fellow Filipinos,” said Bonoan.
