The City Government of Cagayan de Oro is set to complete the construction of the Bigaan River Bank Protection project located in Barangay Gusa by December this year. The areas abutting Bigaan River in Gusa is one of the most flood-prone areas in the city.
As shown, construction of the dike has showed significant progress.
Construction is now moving upstream.
Access to the river is also included in the dike design.
The costs nearly P15 million with target date of completion on December 4, 2017.
The months of November and December is critical in the city particularly on weather disturbances such as typhoon and flooding in the past few years so this dike will certainly alleviate the fears of the residents in the area.
