Lingayen Mayor Leopoldo Bataoil said he is supporting the temporary closure of Daang Kalikasan and the Daang Katutubo starting February 17.
The Pangasinan politiko initiated the projects when he was still 2nd District Representative.
Daang Kalikasan is located in Mangatarem while Daang Katutubo is in Aguilar.
Both roads are not yet completed.
Authorities have reported garbage being left by tourists in the area.
“We agreed for the temporary closure because of the influx of tourists,” Bataoil said.
“The priority now is the completion of the project,” he added.
