For the first time after almost 16 years, the concreting of the Looc bypass road finally commences with funds appropriated courtesy of Senator Bam Aquino in response to Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo’s request for the repair, rehabilitation and concreting of this major alternative route to prevent traffic congestion near Silliman University and the city pier area.

Mayor Remollo was heavily criticized in the past when he insisted on opening the Looc bypass as it would displace some families.

At present, people could only thank Mayor Remollo for his foresight and political will, which proved beneficial to the greater majority.
