BALER, Aurora -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) deployed its personnel for the clean-up drive and repair of potholes along major roads leadings to public and private schools in the province.

DPWH District Engr. Reynaldo Alconcel said that northern and central part of Aurora have undergone clearing operations.
    
“We have ensured the smoother flow of traffic and guarantee safety of pedestrians with the anticipated influx of motorists during the opening of classes,” Alconcel said.  
    
As part of this year’s Brigada Eskwela 2017 program, the DPWH district repainted pedestrial lane crossings and removed unsafe billboards and signages located within school vicinity.
    
They also cleaned and declogged line canals along national roads to prevent the spread of dengue-carrying mosquitoes.
    
Alconcel also ordered to speed up the construction of all school buildings in the province in time for the opening of classes next month.
    
DPWH records show that 15 school buildings have been completed while 24 others are still being constructed under the Basic Educational and Facilities Fund (BEFF) last year.
    
Meanwhile, the annual Brigada Eskwela of the Department of Education (DepEd) Schools Division will kick-off simultaneously to prepare the 175 school facilities from kindergarten, elementary to secondary in this province for the opening of classes this June.
