>> Tuesday, July 4, 2017

BANGUED, Abra -- The Department of  Public Works and Highways  is moving to address transport problem of   communities in towns across Baay River   following collapse of Baay Bridge  due to the typhoons that hit  the province last year.
Engineer Edwin Bringas, head of maintenance section of the DPWH– Abra Engineering District Office, said residents in upland municipalities will be relieved soon since bailey panels from Bataan will brought to Abra very soon for the construction of a bailey bridge to ease transport woes.
Bringas said the DPWH – regional and central offices already conducted inspection of the Baay Bridge in preparation for re-bidding of construction project since the first bidding was a failure.
The Baay Bridge is a component of the Abra-Cervantes National Road located in Brgy. Bio, Lagangilang. 
The said road is the major road network that services the municipalities of Bucay, Sallapadan, Bucloc, Daguioman, and Tubo and up to the municipalities of Quirino and Cervantes in Ilocos Sur as well as to the Mountain Province.
Rep. Joseph Sto. Niño Bernos   said he directed the DPWH to hasten bidding and construction of the Baay Bridge to facilitate the smooth flow of transportation along the Abra-Cervantes Road.  -- PIA-Abra
