After a series of delays, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced that it has finally completed portion of the Mindanao Avenue Extension road. The government body claims that it will significantly reduce travel time from the intersection of P. Dela Cruz to General Luis, Valenzuela City.
The Mindanao Avenue Extension spans just 700 meters of road work and has four lanes in both directions. It will also have drainage, slope protection, street lighting, a center island, and sidewalks for the safety of its users.
With this, DPWH National Capital Region (NCR) Director Melvin B. Navarro said that travel time will drop from 30 minutes to just three to six minutes.
The goal of this project is to decongest traffic within the vicinity from Quezon City particularly Novaliches, Valenzuela and Caloocan City, and vice versa.
To recall, the Mindanao Avenue Extension project’s construction had to grind to a halt due to road right-of-way issues. It took a few years to settle these problems before building resumed in 2017, where 1.4 km worth of road was completed and opened since 2014.
This newly opened portion of the project is part of the remaining 1.7 km road improvement at Mindanao Avenue Extension in Caloocan.
