The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is eyeing to extend the Cagayan de Oro Coastal Road from Barangay Puerto in Opol, Misamis Oriental to Barangay Gusa, Cagayan De Oro City.

“To further ease mobility in the city, we hope to extend additional 9.30 kilometers of road which will be under Phase 2 of the project starting next year,” Public Works and Highways Sec. Mark Villar said.

The DPWH said that the road project will further reduce travel time between the barangays of Puerto and Igpit from the usual one hour and 30 minutes via Butuan City-Cagayan de Oro City-Iligan City Road (BCIR), to only 25 minutes via CDO Coastal Road Extension.

The DPWH said that it is proposing the inclusion of the Coastal Road Phase 2 in its 2021 budget. If funding requirement will be released as scheduled, the DPWH said that the project will be completed by 2024.

“We also would like to include street lights, sidewalk, bike lane, trees and other public space component to further improve aesthetic of this road,” Villar said.

The DPWH is currently working on the remaining civil works of 17.97-kilometer Cagayan de Oro Coastal Road Phase 1 Project at Barangay Puntod section which include the construction of a rotunda that will connect Cagayan de Oro’s 3rd Bridge to the remaining section of the project in the vicinity of the Philippine Ports Authority.

Despite ongoing project status, its Gusa-Igpit section was opened to vehicular traffic in November 2017, traversing the local roads in Agora section to serve its purpose in catering passenger buses, cargo trucks and other heavy-loaded equipment, thus, helping reduced traffic congestion in the city proper.
