Kennon open for light cars by Feb
by Jane B. Cadalig

Kennon Road will be open for light vehicles only in time for the celebration of the Panagbenga Festival and alumni homecoming of the Philippine Military Academy in February. But the definite date of Kennon’s re-opening is yet to be announced.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said the Department of Public Works and Highways, during a meeting with the Office of the Civil Defense and the city, among other agencies, has committed to open Kennon for light vehicles next month.

Domogan said a memorandum of agreement has been signed, in which the responsibilities of government line agencies, such as the DPWH, OCD, and other concerned offices have been defined.

Domogan said the DPWH is continuously coordinating with the contractors of the ongoing rehabilitation of Kennon Road to ensure that the opening of the road, the shortest route to Baguio City from the lowlands, will happen in time for the month-long Panagbenga celebrations.

He added medical and traffic personnel will be deployed along the road to ensure the safety of motorists and to have people who could readily respond to any emergency when Kennon Road reopens.

“Once Kennon Road reopens in February, it will remain open for light vehicles only, unless there is a need to close it for safety reasons and for rehabilitation works,” Domogan said.

He added notices must be placed in Rosario, La Union and before Barangay Camp 8 to notify the public that Kennon is not passable before it is closed to facilitate rehabilitation works.

Kennon Road was closed to motorists since June 2018 for the rehabilitation of critical sections of the road.

Motorists have been clamoring for the reopening of Kennon Road because of the traffic congestions experienced along the Palispis-Aspiras Highway.

Residents of Tuba, Benguet have also appealed for the reopening of the road to ease the inconveniences they have suffered in the last six months.
