Cong. Mate Bridge partially open for light vehicles amidst ongoing repairs

The DPWH announces the partial reopening of Cong. Mate Avenue Bridge, allowing light vehicles to traverse and easing city congestion in time for Tacloban's June patronal festivities.

TACLOBAN CITY – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has announced the partial reopening of the Cong. Artemio Mate Avenue Bridge in the Quarry area, which will help alleviate traffic congestion. This comes after months of closure due to renovations.

According to the DPWH's signage, only light vehicles can cross the partially accessible bridge. Despite ongoing repairs, Cong. Mate Avenue is fully operational, providing a vital alternative route for city motorists.

This strategic opening coincides with the influx of visitors expected for Tacloban's upcoming patronal festivities in June. The move is expected to significantly reduce traffic congestion in the city during this busy time.

The DPWH and city officials are urging motorists to follow the 'light vehicles only' policy implemented on the partially reopened bridge. This measure is critical for preserving the bridge's structural integrity and ensuring the safety of all road users while it is being renovated.

As work on the Cong. Mate Bridge continues, the DPWH assures the public that they are working tirelessly to fully restore the bridge's functionality, to further ease the city's traffic situation, and bolstering its infrastructure. —iTacloban
