ANGELES CITY — Department of Public Works and Highways completed the improvement of the 1.247-kilometer portion of the Angeles-Porac-Floridablanca-Dinalupihan Road.
Pampanga 2nd District Engineer Gregorio Audea Jr. said the P29 million asphalt overlay project done at the road’s Porac Section was finished ahead of schedule.
“Our office maintains the 28.34-kilometer segment of this secondary road that connects Angeles City in Pampanga and Dinalupihan in Bataan,” he shared.
“It is estimated that more than seven thousand vehicles pass through here daily and traffic load is one of the reasons for the deterioration of the road pavement,” the official explained.
The asset preservation project involves the application of bituminous concrete overlay in which the appropriate thickness was determined to accommodate the additional traffic loads hence extending pavement life and provide a good driving surface.
Reflectorized thermoplastic pavement markings were also installed to ensure road safety and smooth flow of traffic. (CLJD-PIA 3)
