Bulacan leading politikos inaugurate P29M bridge
Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado and Vice Governor Daniel Fernando inaugurated on Monday the rehabilitated 25 linear-meter bridge in Barangay Dulong Bayan, San Jose del Monte City.
According to the provincial government, the reopened bridge will benefit commuters and motorists going to the city’s Barangay Poblacion as it shortens travel time.
The 49-year-old bridge was closed for a year to make way for its reconstruction that took five months.
The reconstruction cost P29,870,112.50.
“Noong panahong ginawa ito noong 1970, wala pang retrofitting technology. Kaya kahit na 70 years ang life span ng tulay na ito, talagang kapapalitan na at ang dumadaan dito’y mabibigat,” Sy-Alvarado said.
“This time, matibay po ito at aabutin ito ng more than 70 years,” he added.
Before it was opened for passage, the bridge was first blessed by Fr. Arvin Rey Jimenez.
