Motorists in Bacolod City are expected to enjoy a smoother flow of traffic as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced the completion of the Lacson-Circumferential Flyover, the first flyover project in Negros Occidental.

Implemented by the DPWH-President's Bridge Program, the 195-lineal meter flyover and its 145-lineal meter approach road was built at a cost of P365.436 million. It was completed a month ahead of schedule to decongest the traffic in Bacolod City.

According to DPWH undersecretary Rafael Yabut and assistant secretary Emil K. Sadain, both of whom serve as project implementation officers for Official Development Assistance-funded projects, the early completion of the project supports the DPWH's convergence program with the Department of Tourism as it serves as a support infrastructure for Bacolod, which is being promoted as a strategic tourism destination.

The newly-built flyover is also expected to boost to the development projects of the Department of Transportation and Communications by providing speedy access to the province's designated airports and roll-on-roll-off ports.
