The City Government of Cagayan de Oro has began the construction of the Macanhan Flyover.
As a result, a major traffic jam occurred at the junction which surprised many motorists when the City’s Road and Traffic Administration (RTA) implemented a re-routing scheme with little prior unfo dissemination. Masterson Avenue is now closed to all motorists as the large pile driver occupied the existing two lanes of the road. Both uptown-bound and downtown-bound vehicles from uptown area will have to take the SM-Landfill Road while another alternative will take the more distant Pelaez Bridge and South Diversion Road.
The project is scheduled to be completed in four (4) months. As shown, the re-routing removed the traffic in the area and the contractor can now focused on the project with little disturbance. Adjoining properties will be affected.
