Roads to and from Cagayan de Oro are being widened to accommodate the projected increase in vehicular traffic as the city’s economic progress continues. This is also the case of the Puerto-Alae Section of Sayre Highway which is being widened from 2 to 4 lanes.
As shown in the following photos, the existing 2-lane asphalt highway is also being paved, creating some slow down on vehicular traffic particularly as the highway starts its descent to Barangay Puerto.
This is the quarantine area section.
Traffic starts to build up in the winding road at Carmen Hill leading to Puerto.
Traffic starts to ease up near the under construction Gaisano Puerto (right).
You can see the new concrete road at left and the old asphalt road at right. This section is at Xavier University’s El Gaucho area.
