Mountain Province Governor Bonifacio Lacwasan Jr said the provincial government is open to giving financial assistance to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) so that the Busa section of the Baguio-Bontoc Road will finally be opened.
Super Typhoon Ompong damaged the Busa section of the road last year.
The Mountain Province politiko said the opening of the Busa section will benefit many travelers going in and out of the province.
“We are awaiting for the DPWH-FMPDEO to work on their proposal for the temporary opening of the Busa section of the Halsema Highway,” Lacwasan said.
“To ensure the opening of the road, the provincial government is willing to allocate the required funds to guarantee the safety of the motorists who will be using the rod to travel to and from the province,” he added.
