The new 7.17 km by-pass road crosses two major road intersections of Urdaneta-Dagupan Road and Urdaneta-Manaoag Provincial Road.
The PHP1.885bn ($39.19m) project includes the construction of six new lanes portland concrete cement pavement along with sidewalk, drainage and slope protection, as well as the installation of solar streetlights.
