While the Kauswagan-Igpit Section is already open and has provided alternate routes for to vehicular traffic, the Puntod-Gusa Section of the 12.77-kilometer Cagayan de Oro Coastal Road Project remains unfinished up to this day.
Based on a news report by SunStar CDO, project completion is currently being hampered by six (6) road-right-of-way (RROW) issues with the biggest concerning a property by Brgy. 33 Chairman Conrad Lim located in Gusa.
Accordingly, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) tried to negotiate with Mr. Lim who refused to cooperate prompting the agency to refer the matter to the Solicitor General for expropriation proceedings.
Once the RROW issues are resolved, the Gusa-Puntod-Kauswagan-Igpit Coastal Road could be opened to motorists next year. This will help alleviate the worsening traffic condition in the city.
