DPWH Region 10 officials formally opened to traffic yesterday the newly-completed Larapan Bailey Bridge.
The bridge has a 20-ton load limit for ten vehicles crossing on alternate. Routes from Cagayan de Oro to Zamboanga, Ozamis, Dipolog and Pagadian and vice-versa are therefore reconnected. The old bridge was destroyed last January 13 at the height of Tropical Depression Agaton.
