CDO coastal by­pass in­au­gu­ra­tion to­day

Business World - - THENATION -

THE 12.77-kilo­me­ter Ca­gayan de Oro (CDO) Coastal Road — which is ex­pected to di­vert heavy-loaded trucks from neigh­bor­ing prov­inces go­ing to the port and thus de­con­gest traf­fic in the city proper — is sched­uled for in­au­gu­ra­tion to­day, Nov. 10, ac­cord­ing to De­part­ment of Pub­lic Works and High­ways (DPWH)-North­ern Min­danao Re­gional Di­rec­tor Vir­gilio C. Ed­uarte. The road spans from Barangay Gusa in the eastern side to Barangay Ig­pit, Opol in Misamis Ori­en­tal. The Gusa-Agora sec­tion of the coastal road will be opened this month, while the con­struc­tion of the Agora-PPA-Cor­rales sec­tion is also in progress. The project has faced de­lays due mainly to road right-of-way is­sues (RROW). Mr. Ed­uarte said Task Force Hap­say Dalan, the Ca­gayan de Oro City gov­ern­ment and other line agen­cies as­sisted in ad­dress­ing the ob­struc­tion prob­lems, while four RROW is­sues are still await­ing the fil­ing of ex­pro­pri­a­tion cases. —
