Construction of the P5.1 billion 3.6-kilometer 2-lane Panguil Bay Bridge Project will soon start. This was announced by no less than President Benigno S. Aquino III during his recent visit to Tangub City in Misamis Occidental.
The bridge which will connect Tangub City and Tubod, the provincial capital of Lanao del Norte, will reduce travel time between Tangub and Tubod from the usual 2.5 hours to a mere 7 minutes. Also, also significantly improved will be the travel time from Cagayan de Oro and Iligan to the cities of Tangub, Ozamiz, Oroquieta, Dipolog, and Dapitan in Zamboanga de Norte.
