One of the FMR project is the concreting of Brgy. San Jose to Barangay Langoyon in Calbayog City. This will span 0.4 km of Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP) with a 6.1-meter width. It has a contract amount of P12.75 million.

On the other hand, another concreting will be constructed with a legth of 0.165 km and width of 6.1 meters of PCCP in Barangay Quezon to Barangay San Isidro. This has a contract amount of P9.81 million.
