Don Apolinar Velez Street is Cagayan de Oro’s main thoroughfare from the National Highway (CM Recto Avenue)leading to the city proper.

Government buildings, schools, banks, hospitals, offices, hotels, a sports complex, restaurants, and fast food outlets are all located along this street considered to be the city’s widest for many years. As the city progressed through the years, the ‘widest’ street have become ‘narrow’ by the daily traffic now occurring as shown in the rush hour photo above.
