Also included in the project is the expansion of the Sta. Ines Interchange

targeted for completion by the end of 2017.
Moreover, the NLEX Corporation is also retrofitting the main bridge of San
Simon Interchange as part of the company's commitment to ensure the safety
of the motorists.
Meanwhile, the agency says that they are preparing to submit to the
government its plan to extend the NLEX to Bataan province by early 2018.
The company adds that they are currently finalizing engineering studies for
the Phase 3, a 37.76-kilometer expressway from Sto. Tomas, Pampanga to
