Heading out to Baguio soon? If you are, then you'd probably want to avoid taking Marcos Highway (aka the Agoo – Baguio City Road) when you want to get to the City of Pines.

Effective January 7, 2019 – March 22, 2019, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is conducting road rehabilitation along the major thoroughfare. The gov't agency is currently doing road works along the Road Slip at Kilometer 253, Barangay Cares, Pugo, La Union.

DPWH conducting road repairs along Marcos Highway going to Baguio

Motorists are advised to take alternate routes as moderate to heavy traffic is expected to take place during the road rehabilitation. Other available roads available for use going to and from Baguio include Naguilian Road (Bauang – Baguio City Road) and the Anduyan-Rizal-San-Pascual-Nangalesan-Asin Road via the newly-opened Anduyan Bridge in Tubao, La Union.

Kennon Road, sadly, is still closed to the public as the DPWH is still working on making the two-lane highway safe for motorists. Last September 2018, Typhoon Ompong battered the aforementioned road, resulting in rocks and other debris blocking portions of the major roadway. Currently, the DPWH is conducting curtain rock-netting operations along Kennon Road to keep any type of debris from falling.
