The final piece of the city road network at the proposed Paseo del Rio site is nearing completion. Except for the portion near the Bell Church property, the 4-lane road is now connected to the Rodelsa Circle, aptly named for the rotunda in honor of Rodolfo and Elsa Pelaez who donated the property to the city government.
UKC Builders, the road contractor has completed almost half of the road length. They’re currently working on the drainage lines along the side of the road.
Large culverts can be seen along the road. Although closed to traffic, some motorcycles and light vehicles are already using the road to Macasandig area.
Rodelsa Circle can be seen straight ahead and Kagay-an Bridge on extreme left in the background.
This road leading to the Bell Church (Taoist Temple) is expected to ease traffic along Tomas Saco Street where motorists going to Corpus Christi, St. Mary’s and Oro Grace Christian School more often cause traffic jams.

The concrete fence on the left is the contested property of Bell Church and this is where the 4-lane road becomes just 2 lanes.
The Bell Church (Taoist Temple) shown below is one of the many attractions in the city. Sadly, it has become a major concern for negotiations for the road.
