Construction of the P264 million Opol Port Development Project is set to start soon. This after the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) issued a Notice of Award of the project to Butuan-based Equi-Parco Consruction Company.
The new port project which will be located in Barangay Luyong Bonbon, Opol, Misamis Oriental is intended to be an alternative port for domestic tramping vessels and decongest Cagayan de Oro Port. Opol is more or less 30 kilometers west of Cagayan de Oro City. A series of public hearings and consultations were conducted particularly among affected residents prior to the start of the project.
