The Divine Mercy Shrine in El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental is one of the most frequently visited places in the region especially during the Lenten Season. With Holy Week set to begin next week, thousands of devotees and tourists are expected to flock to the religious complex.

Due to the expected influx of visitors, local traffic authorities have devised a plan for the smooth traffic flow entering and exiting the Shrine Hills complex as shown below (click image for larger view). The plan shows a one-way traffic entering the complex at the usual entrance and exiting through Amparo Subd. beside Universal Robina Corp. (URC) factory. Several parking areas have also been designated to prevent vehicles from parking along the road.
