Another bridge spanning Cagayan de Oro River will be constructed soon linking the coastal barangays of Bonbon and Macabalan. The project was finally confirmed with the recent ground breaking ceremony held at Bonbon.
Based on the billboard above, the bridge will be 2 lanes and 1.315 kilometers long which will be the longest in Mindanao once completed. The projects costs P384,259,000 and will be built by UKC Builders, Inc. Below is our version of the bridge route as seen in the billboard. The approach at Macabalan side will affect a densely populated community.
The project will enable efficient logistic transport from Iligan City to the Cagayan de Oro Port. Further, it will also decongest traffic in the city. See photos below during the ground breaking with 1st Dist. Rep. Rolando “Klarex” Uy.
The bridge design will allow barges and motor boats to navigate below the bridge.
