Construction of flood mitigation structures along Claro M. Recto Avenue about to commence - DPWH

Construction of flood mitigation structures is about to commence along Claro M. Recto Avenue of the Butuan City-Cagayan de Oro City-Iligan City Road (BCIR), specifically covering the area from crossing of Puregold to Bitan-ag Bridge and from Limketkai Drive corner Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL) to McDonald’s.

In coordination with Cagayan de Oro City Local Government Unit (CDOC LGU) through its Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) and by virtue of Executive Order No. 129-2021A signed by City Mayor Oscar S. Moreno, ordering a temporary traffic scheme for the construction of box culvert along BCIR and Limketkai Drive, a dry run for the temporary traffic scheme will be implemented on Saturday, November 27, 2021, in preparation for the commencement of construction works on Monday, November 29, 2021.

The construction sequence of DPWH Regional Office X comprises five (5) phases – with five (5) sub-phases for Phase 1 and two (2) sub-phases for Phase 2 – hence, the basis of RTA’s temporary traffic scheme. (Please refer to EO No. 129-2021A below)

The First Phase (Sub-phases 1A and 1B) of the project implementation involves the construction of a single barrel diversion drainage line that would connect the existing Bitan-ag Channel at Limketkai to the diversion drainage line along BCIR and Agora Terminal Road in Lapasan. Thus, a temporary road closure of a portion from the crossing of Puregold towards Limketkai Drive fronting CBTL will be implemented.

Aiming to mitigate flooding in the mentioned areas, the constructed drainage line will divert water from Bitan-ag Creek in Limketkai Section leading to CM Recto Highway then straight to Valenzuela Road in Agora and exits at the downstream portion of the creek.

The First Phase (Sub-phases 1C, 1D and 1E) also includes the re-blocking and raising along the BCIR section, from Puregold to Bitan-ag Bridge, by not more than one meter. This phase of the project will run for 300 calendar days considering that no major intervening issues are encountered.

Project details for Phases 2 to 5 will be presented in a separate press release once construction works will begin for the said specific sections.

Meanwhile, on a larger scale, the CDO Urban Drainage Master Plan is now funded by 47.12% or Php 3.198 Billion out of the total project cost of Php 7.265 Billion. This funded amount covers 21,564.03 linear meters of the project or 53.17% of the total project length.
