It will start from the banks where J.R. Borja Avenue ends and span the Cagayan River across to the Carmen side.
It is called the Spanish Bridge because all expenses for the construction will be handled by the government of Spain thanks to the efforts of Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano who has requested for this assistance about 6 years ago.
And finally, everything is ready for its construction which will begin on September this year.
Congressman Benjo Benaldo, whom the mayor has tasked to work out and follow up on the project in the capital, divulged that the funds are ready including that which is needed to pay off the private properties affected by the project.
The mayor thanked the Spanish government for their generosity as the bridge not only will enhance the beauty of the city but most importantly ease up the traffic congestion in the area.
“Sa ngalan sa katawhan sa dakbayan, ako, kuyog sa akong mga kauban sa Konseho ug ni Congressman Benjo Benaldo naga-pasalamat sa gobyerno sa Espanya sa maong dakong tabang,” the mayor said.
