The asphalt laying project of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has finally reached the busiest thoroughfare in Cagayan de Oro City.
The project began last December 2015 and is scheduled for completion in August this year. Read previous post HERE. The asphalt overlay project covers the whole stretch of the National Highway from Bugo to Iponan. As shown below, asphalt laying is now being implemented on the westbound lanes of CM Recto Avenue.
You can clearly see the asphalt layers on the left. Actually, work is done at night to avoid the traffic during the day.
Closer look shows the initial layer on the outer lane and a second layer on the inner lane.
Asphalt thickness will be 100 mm based on previous announcement.
Motorists especially those riding in bikes and motorcycles are advised to be extra careful in negotiating the road with new asphalt overlay particularly at night and in the event of rain due to the slippery conditions and uneven gaps of the road.
