On 19th April, 2016, President John Mahama inaugurated the Dodo Pepesu-Nkwanta section of the Eastern Corridor Road.
The newly completed road, which is a two-lane single carriageway with double bituminous seal, is the first segment of the Eastern corridor road to be completed.
The Eastern corridor road project, which is a 695 km stretch from the Greater Accra Region through the Volta Region to Kulungugu in the Upper East Region, is the single longest road project in the country.
During the inauguration, President Maham said,
"Work is ongoing on other segments including Otidamanko-Nakpanduri, Nkwanta - Otidamanko, Have-Hohoe, and Hohoe to Jasikan, and Nakpanduri–Bawku–Kulungugu."
The Paramount Chief of the Dodo Traditional Area, Daasebre Obonie Sebewie V, commended the government for the massive projects it had undertaken in the area, especially in the road, electricity, education and water sectors.
