The 125.42-kilometer Malaybalay-Gingoog Bypass Road is now at 84.23% accomplishment based on the project’s total cost. The project is envisioned to facilitate convenient inter-provincial road network.

As per DPWH-X, the road project began its early phases of construction in the year 2015 and has received partial releases every year which totaled Php 7,643,714,000.00 from FY 2015 to FY 2022 funded under General Appropriations Act. The overall budget estimated to complete the project is Php 8.1 Billion.


This two-lane road will serve as an alternate route between the two cities without passing through the congested Sayre Highway and the Butuan City-Cagayan de Oro City-Iligan City Road (BCIR).


It will traverse the 1st Legislative District (LD) of Misamis Oriental crossing barangays Santiago, Bal-ason, Dalway and Hindangon of Gingoog City; the 2nd LD of Misamis Oriental through Sitio Kalhaan in Claveria, Barangay Bulonay, Sitio Ulayanon, Barangays Kalabugao and Mintupad; and in the 2nd LD of Bukidnon passing barangays Can-ayan, Kibalabag and Manalog of Malaybalay City.


This Inter-Provincial Road Network is projected to have a vigorous development in the economic growth of the agricultural sector and facilitate the mobilization of the government’s program in support to the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) resulting to improved peace and order of the two interconnected provinces including its neighboring towns.

The route will keep you captivated with the stunning mountain scenery, vast agricultural land and abundant flow of natural water which are potential tourism sites and encourage investors across the globe.
