Corrales Avenue is one of Cagayan de Oro City’s major and longest streets. It starts from Nazareth boundary and ends up towards Port Area.
Named after Manuel Roa Corrales, the first governor of Misamis Province in the post Spanish era, it is a major link connecting Divisoria (City Proper) and CM Recto Avenue. And because of this, it is also among the most traffic prone thoroughfares. The whole length of Corrales has 4 lanes but only 2 lanes are actually effectively being used by motorists because the outer lanes are utilized for roadside parking. Many new establishments along Corrales have incorporated parking spaces in the design of their new buildings but still, a large majority of buildings do not have parking spaces which eventually lead to traffic congestion especially during rush hours.
