DPWH: Katipunan widening, flood-control project done
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed its P55-million road widening and flood-control project on Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar on Wednesday led the opening of the newly-completed project covering a 672-meter long portion of Katipunan’s southbound lane, from Shuster Street to CP
Garcia Avenue, fronting University of the Philippines – Diliman campus.
Villar said the road widening was integrated with the proposed UP-Miriam-Ateneo Viaduct Project to decongest traffic at the intersection of CP Garcia and Katipunan.
The DPWH constructed two additional lanes along the southbound direction of Katipunan, including improvement works, installation of reinforced concrete pipes for flood-control, retaining wall, and restoration of perimeter fence and gates of UP Diliman.
The DPWH Quezon City Second District Engineering Office was able to complete the widening works within a year since they started in February 2017, the agency added. –Tina G. Santos
