TACLOBAN CITY – The Leyte Second District Engineering Office (L2DEO) of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has reported the completion of the road widening and drainage project along a portion of the Jaro-Dagami-Burauen-La Paz road in Dagami town.

The project, which has a P29.36 million budget, comes from the DPWH CY 2023 General Appropriations Act.

It involves the widening of the existing 2-lane road to a 4-lane road, measuring 538 linear meters in a 3.65-meter width on both sides of the carriageway in Barangay Plaridel.

Provisions of concrete drainage structures were constructed to serve as waterways and to run-off surface water from the pavement.

District Engineer Leo Edward Oppura said that the road network serves as an alternate route instead of the major highways so it is necessary to expand the road to enhance accessibility for the traveling public.

The project was constructed on March 6, 2023 and was completed on August 23 of this year.
