RDC wants Kennon Road repairs to be fast-tracked
by Hanna C. Lacsamana

With the increasing clamor for a breather from the traffic caused by the large volume of vehicles going to Baguio City using the Palispis-Aspiras (Marcos) Highway, Mayor Mauricio Domogan has asked the Department of the Public Works and Highways to fast-track the reopening of Kennon Road, which has been closed since June this year.

The matter will also be submitted for discussion this month during the fourth quarter joint Regional Development Council and Regional Peace and Order Council Cordillera, which Domogan both chairs.

In his weekly media briefing on Wednesday, the mayor acknowledged the mounting complaints from residents and visitors about the traffic that take hours in areas traversed by the Palispis-Aspiras Highway and roads towards the city, which has been the case since the prolonged closure of Kennon Road.

Residents of Baguio and Tuba, Benguet barangays have also been clamoring for the fast completion of the construction of the bridge at Camp 5, as some of them either have to transfer vehicles at the road cut or travel to La Union to Marcos Highway when going to Baguio.

“Motorists have no choice but to endure the traffic, so we repeat our appeal to the DPWH to open Kennon Road or allow at least light vehicles to use it to reduce the volume of vehicles in Marcos Highway,” Domogan said.

He said the matter will be taken up and acted upon by the RDC-RPOC members on their Dec. 19 meeting in Baguio.

DPWH recommended the temporary closure of Kennon Road, the shortest alternate route to Baguio, to tourists due to landslides and eroded portions caused by heavy rains and typhoons this year. Last June, three persons were injured and their vehicle was totally wrecked when a large boulder fell on them while traversing the road in Camp 3.
