CANDON CITY, Ilocos Sur —Travel time going to Manila, Baguio and other destinations in Luzon was shortened with opening of the P500-million bypass road here to light vehicles, decongesting heavy traffic in the city proper.
Public Works and Highways Second District Engineer Jose “Bong” Ginete, Jr. bared this Tuesday saying said half of the 7-km road was initially opened to motorists as the DPWH is now rushing completion of the alternate road.
"The bypass road will certainly relieve stress of motorists stuck in heavy traffic in the city proper during rush hours," said Ginete.
The bypass road traverses Barangays Tablac, Bagani, Paryok, up to Ayudente where the national highway links, avoiding totally the traffic inside the city proper, Ginete said.
Ginete added fund for the road was sourced by Ilocos Sur 2nd District Rep. Eric D. Singson, who is credited for concreting of arm-to-market and barangays roads even in ar-flung areas of the province.

“This will not only decongest traffic along the city proper but also shorten travel time going to Manila, Baguio and Northern destinations,” said Ginete.
