Here are recent photos of CM Recto Avenue, probably Cagayan de Oro City’s busiest thoroughfare taken on weekend atop Limketkai-MUST overpass.
Photos above and below show CM Recto Avenue looking west. As noticed, traffic builds up as westbound vehicles approach the first intersection at Osmeña Junction. Notice Tune Hotel rising on the left of the picture. I couldn;t imagine in a few years time once SM builds their own downtown mall in the same area.
Photo below shows the stretch from Osmeña Junction up to Capt. Vicente Roa junction (Centrio Mall). You could notice the two cement mixers at Centrio Mall.
To the right is Gaisano City Mall. Expect tempers to rise once Ayala opens in a few weeks. The City’s traffic administrators (RTA) should have finalized the re-routing scheme by now.
Closer look at the 6-lane CM Recto Avenue. Licoan flyover is in the background.
Below is CM Recto Avenue looking east toward Lapasan. Traffic tends to ease up at Limketkai Avenue Junction.
CM Recto Avenue is also called billboard avenue for some… obviously.
The first traffic build up starts at Agora Road Junction. In the horizon is already Lapasan Highway. Traffic for city-bound vehicles will be slow-moving upon approaching the said junction while outbound vehicles speed up.
