Mobility within and around Marikina City is expected to be smoother in the coming years after the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for a loan application for the construction of three new bridges spanning the Marikina River. The proposed structures are the J.P. Rizal-Lopez Jaena Bridge and Marcos Highway-St. Mary Bridge (formerly J.P. Rizal-St. Mary Bridge), both in Marikina City, and the Kabayani-Katipunan Avenue Extension Bridge (formerly Marikina-Vista Real Bridge) connecting Marikina City and Quezon City. Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said the detailed engineering design for the bridges are now being prepared by the DPWH Unified Project Management Office (UPMO) Bridge Management Cluster and the consulting firm Dasan JV.
