CANDAU-AY-CADAWINONAN BRIDGE READY BY NEXT YEAR

The bridge connecting Barangays Candau-ay (back of Vida Royal) and Cadawinonan, which is part of the Dumaguete Diversion Road, is expected to be completed by next year provided all the lot owners will vacate their properties so that the approaches will be developed and paved.

Mayor Felipe Antonio “Ipe” Remollo inspected the bridge’s deck along with Councilor Joe Kenneth Arbas, City Planning and Development Coordinator Leonides Caro, Engineer Wilfredo Oira and Frannie Pabayos of the Environment and Natural Resources Office.

As soon as the bridge is completed all trucks, buses and jeeps will be diverted from the streets of the city’s downtown to reduce traffic congestion.
