A simple inauguration of the lighting program in the Cagayan de Oro Coastal Bypass Road was held today with Cagayan de Oro 2nd District Rep. Rufus Rodriguez and DPWH 2nd District Engineer Gabriel Guinitaran. A total of 37 electric posts in Barangay Gusa (Baywalk side) have so far been energized as of today. Meanwhile, the Puntod and Lapasan segments will be energized within two weeks.
It can be noted that Cong. Rufus has secured P50 million in the 2021 national appropriations to construct and install the 290 light posts with LED bulbs along Phase 1 (Puntod, Lapasan, and Gusa) of the P1.9 billion-worth coastal road. The installation of the posts, wirings, and LED bulbs was completed last July by the DPWH 2nd District Engineering Office.
