We got a lot of querries as to the exact location of the temporary diversion road in Balingasag town which affected motorists plying the Cagayan de Oro – Butuan City route and vice versa.
Shown above is a map of the said road which was opened by the local government of Balingasag. Directional signs are available onsite. Most motorists prefer this route than the Gingoog-Claveria Road which was identified by the DPWH and is less traveled. See photos below showing the vehicles along the said route passing the spillway. Concerns on the structural integrity of the spillway were raised since the said structure was not built to handle such volume of vehicular traffic.
