Typhoon “Pedring” damaged 1 bridge in Ifugao

Supporters and relatives who attended and who wanted to attend the burial rites of Representative Baguilat’s father were also stranded at both ends of the bridge.

Crew of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Ifugao First District Engineer Office (DEO) headed by District Engineer Eugene M. Batalao, with the assistance and supervision of Maintenance Chief Engineer Andres B. Dango, immediately closed traffic as of 12: 45 p.m. of September 27.

Batalao immediately reported the calamity incident to the DPWH regional office and coordinated with the Ifugao Provincial Government for quick response.

The DPWH, though, is working on the alternative way for the commuters to cross over. Motorists with light vehicles going to Nueva Vizcaya can pass via Ibulao-Kiangan-Munggayang-Cudog road as an alternative route. (More)
