DPWH inaugurates P60M Mexico Bridge linking town to economic hub
The P60.4-million Mexico Bridge connecting the Pampanga town to the region’s economic center was inaugurated on Saturday.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) led by Engineer Almer Miranda and Pampanga Rep. Aurelio Gonzales led the inauguration rites, according to a Philippine News Agency report.
“This bridge is very vital because Jose Abad Santos Avenue supports the province’s major road transportation network — Pampanga being known as Central Luzon’s main business hub and Region 3 relies mainly in road transport,” Miranda was quoted as saying in the report.
The bridge connects the town to Jose Abad Santos Avenue, which serves as a major link to the provinces of Nueva Ecija, Bataan, and Zambales.
Miranda said the replacement of the dilapidated bridge was crucial since JASA was one of Pampanga’s major arterial roads with an annual average daily traffic of almost 30,000 vehicles.
He also vowed to preserve and maintain the integrity and usability of the New Mexico Bridge, a critical component of Pampanga’s infrastructure, according to the report.
