If plans push through, construction of the first road tunnel in Cagayan de Oro City could be implemented this year. The tunnel is part of the Gusa-Puerto (Interior) By-pass Road Project.
As shown below, two budgetary allotments for the project were included in DPWH’s budget for this year totaling P350 million.
Last year, DPWH solicited consultancy services for the subsurface exploration of the proposed tunnel section of the said road project. As to the exact location of this tunnel section, it remains to be seen. View our previous post (last year) below.
