The Department of Public Works and Highways – Tarlac 1st District Engineering Office is expected to fully complete the improvement of the 4.445-kilometer Jose V. Yap Sr. Access Road in San Jose, Tarlac next year.
According to District Engineer Erelina B. Santos, the project began in 2019 with the road opening of the 4-lane road connecting Capas-Botolan Road to the Access Road leading to Tarlac Eco-Tourism Park.
“We saw the importance of this road as an alternative route to well-known tourism destinations in the Municipality of San Jose, hence in 2020, our Office completed the concreting of its 2.831-kilometer section equipped with road safety features such as guard rails and pavement markings to make travel safer and more enjoyable,” DE Santos explained.
DE Santos added that the access road will remain passable to motorists while road improvement activities are ongoing in its 1.072-kilometer section that are expected to be completed soon. It was also stated that the local DPWH office has already requested funding for the concreting of the remaining unpaved stretch of the said access road. (Source: DPWH RO3)
