After a long time, government authorities finally started demolishing Illegal structures that have encroached within the 3-meter easement of Valenzuela Road near Agora, Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City.
As shown below, some residents dismantled their own structures. Accordingly, many of the residents affected are qualified for the city’s housing program now being handled by the Hapsay Sapa Team and the City Housing & Urban Development Department (CHUDD). One big structure demolished is the large wall of a warehouse complex. With the ongoing clearing operations, the DPWH can now proceed with the Bitan-ag Bridge Project in the area which has been stalled due to the structures.
