Perhaps you may have not noticed but a new alternate road cutting across the hinterlands of Misamis Oriental is now being constructed linking Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.
The Iligan-Cagayan de Oro Alternate Road (Digkilaan-Bulua Section) could take several years to be completed but road opening is now underway in Brgy. Digkilaan in Iligan City. This is probably the route of the new road traversing the upper portions of the province.
The first part of the project has already been implemented in two packages amounting to almost P200 million by the DPWH. Project billboards installed onsite are shown below.
You can observe ongoing road concreting works (photos taken a couple of months ago).
The project will also provide access to the interior areas. Keep posted.
