MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is done with its road widening and drainage rehabilitation and improvement project along a 1.296-kilometer portion of Old Zapote Road in Barangay 177, Caloocan City.

In his report to Secretary Mark Villar this week, DPWH-National Capital Region director Ador Canlas said the P18.79-million project addressed traffic congestion and recurrent flooding in the area.

“With this project, we have addressed the inefficient drainage system and road capacity of Old Zapote Road, which serves as an access road going to Camarin and Deparo Roads,” Villar said.

The road and drainage improvement project was completed by the DPWH Metro Manila 3rd District Engineering Office one month ahead of schedule despite a two-month project suspension due to the government-imposed community quarantine to curb the spread of COVID-19.
