According to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the bridge and the alternate road are expected to decongest traffic along Agoo-Baguio City Road or Marcos Highway and Bauang-Baguio Road or Naguilian Road. "Those who would like to spend the holidays in Baguio can use this bridge," said DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, noting that the landslide-prone Kennon Road is still closed.
