Sayre Highway is that portion of the National Highway which starts from Puerto in Cagayan de Oro City to Kabacan town in North Cotabato.
The 192-kilometer long highway which cuts across Bukidnon Province was named after Francis Bowes Sayre, Sr., a professor at Harvard Law School who was named as the United States’ High Commissioner to the Philippines from 1947 to 1952. It was named after him since he was the one who spearheaded its construction (from Wikipedia).
Shown below is the starting point of Sayre Highway at Puerto Junction in Cagayan de Oro.
