The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is proud to report the near-completion of a new bypass road in Infanta, Quezon. This road was envisioned to decongest the Infanta town proper and make Dinahican Port more accessible to travelers.
DPWH Quezon 1st District Engineering Office reported that the project under Phase 2 now has an ongoing 545-meters road opening and 2-lane concreting over a length of 380 meters. The project is now 87% complete. Once complete, it will allow travelers to bypass Infanta town and provide and a more direct route to the coast.
“We are right on track to complete this ongoing segment by the end of the year,” says DPWH secretary, Mark Villar. He also added that this would add to the completed first segment from Barangay Silangan to Miswa which is a 4-lane, 315-meter road portion complete with the provision of slope protection works, drainage system, and sidewalk.
The proposed Infanta Bypass Road will be a 4.2 kilometers 4-lane road with a 6.7 meters carriageway width. The entire project is planned for implementation until 2022. To date, DPWH has allocated a total of P100 million for the bypass road since 2019, composed of P50 Million each from 2019 and 2020 General Appropriations Act.
