Ministry of Public Work details works underway in Puerto Plata

The Ministry of Public Works announced that the government is investing RD$3.5 million in 125 public work projects underway in the province of Puerto Plata. The province was hard hit by recent rainstorms. The Ministry says the projects are mainly for the construction of 48 bridges (an investment of RD$1.5 billion), reconstruction of roads, and paving of streets. Works are underway primarily in the city of Puerto Plata and the towns of Imbert, Monte Llano, Altamira, Sosúa, Cabarete and Yásica.

During an inspection tour, engineer Ramón Antonio Pepín of the Ministry of Public Works said that the construction phase of these works began once the design phase of the projects was completed. He said that 15 bridges are already under construction in the province and 10 of these should be ready before August. He explained the bridges are being built to resist heavy rains in the future. The bridges are being built in the communities of Río Grande Abajo, El Combi, Río Grande Al Medio, Pescado Bobo, El Alto de la Jagua and El Almacén.

In the Torre Alta neighborhood in Puerto Plata City, heavy equipment was repairing a section of road at the intersection of Circunvalación and F street, near the residence of Bishop Julio César Corniel Amaro. The road was affected by a landslide.

The Ministry has already paved streets in Copey, restored the Quebrada Honda-Boca de Río Grande and Bellaco road, and the El Jamao-Los Chivos road. The rural road connecting Los Llanos de Pérez-Los Trejos-Los Félix, in Bajabonico, is 90% completed as well as the bridge over Río Bajabonico. In Los Llanos de Pérez heavy equipment is working on the paving of the streets.
