DPWH opens Natulongan Bridge in Kibawe, Bukidnon


Department of Public Works and Highway Secretary Mark Villar recently announced the completion and opening of the new 2-lane Natulongan Bridge in Kibawe, Bukidnon.

Linking Barangay Talahiron with Barangay Magsaysay in Kibawe town, the 134.9-lineal meter bridge across Pulangi River in Sitio Kikipot, Talahiron is a much-needed connectivity infrastructure of the populace.

Prior to the implementation of the project, residents of Barangay Talahiron, Barangay Natulongan and other nearby communities needed to traverse an existing 4-kilometer barangay road. Some would cross the river using a “gaket” or wooden raft, but it becomes impassable during heavy rains.

The P61-million bridge, funded in three (3) phases, was implemented by DPWH Bukidnon 2nd District Engineering Office (DEO), said Villar.

“This project will significantly provide a comfortable, convenient, and safe access to and from the town for basic necessities. Further, it boosts economic activities and increases productivity and income growth of small-scale farmers in the area,” he added.
