Benguet Governor Melchor Diclas and Kibungan Mayor Cesar Molitas on February 10 led the ground-breaking ceremony for the rehabilitation of the Halsema-Madaymen Provincial Road Phase III project.
The road improvement project costs P44.19 million.
It is funded via the Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces (CMGP) program of the Department of the Local and Interior Government (DILG).
Kibungan is one of the two recipients of the CMGP program in the provinces with the other one being Kapangan.
Benguet, meanwhile, is one of the three beneficiaries of the program in the Cordillera region.
The other provinces are Apayao and Mountain Province.
