Considered as vital access roads linking major agricultural areas in major municipalities in Bulacan Province, the Department of Public Works and Highways has converted three (3) local roads into national roads to assure effective monitoring and maintenance of the road network.
In his Department Order No. 22, DPWH Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane Jr. has declared that the Brgy. San Roque Angat to Dona Remedios Trinidad Road (7.8 Km), Dona Remedios Trinidad to Akle San Ildefenso Road (12.9 Km), and Brgy Akle, San Ildefenso to Sibul, San Miguel Road Section (19.4 Km) into national roads.
" These roads are vital in the agricultural communities especially to the rice farmers in the municipalities of Dona Remedios, San Ildefonso and San Miguel Bulacan, now that they are converted into national roads, we can now allot funds for their immediate maintenance works along the road network and make them passable at all times" Ebdane said.
Under Executive Order No. 124 Series of 1987, the DPWH was authorized to classify roads and highways into national, provincial, city, municipal, and barangay roads. However the local roads to be converted shall conform with the criteria set by DPWH for national roads.
The said road network will be monitored and maintained by the DPWH Bulacan Second District Engineering Office.
