Here is the latest aerial update of the 5.5-kilometer 4-lane alternate highway from Poblacion, Opol to Canitoan, Cagayan de Oro City. When completed, motorists from western Misamis Oriental and going to Uptown CDO will bypass Iponan and Bulua area.
As shown in this video below courtesy of TRip ni Tonio, the 4-lane highway has a very wide shoulder which can be used for future expansion. But perhaps DPWH is also considering a bike lane. You can also observe a bridge over Iponan River as part of the highway. This road project is still far from finished but the middle sections are still under construction which connect to the Opol section.
