At first glance, you wouldn’t think this is in Cagayan de Oro but this is the new River Boulevard which is part of the Cagayan de Oro River Flood Risk Management Project now illuminated with street lights. It is still closed to the public as the project has not yet been turned over yet. Check out latest aerial updates courtesy of TRip ni ToniO.
The whole 2.3-kilometer stretch from Puntod towards JR Borja Bridge is now well lighted.
When this is opened to the public, it’s a perfect spot for night jogging.
Structures not related to the project will not be allowed along the boulevard.
You can observe the well-lighted boulevard and Marcos Bridge.
This is looking north. Kauswagan is at right.
This is looking east. See the access points at Montalvan Street at Iglesia Ni Cristo and at JR Borja Bridge at right.
The boulevard is parallel to Burgos Street.
There is still no info whether vehicle parking will be allowed once it will be opened.
This is by far the most complete roadway in the city far better than the Coastal Road which was opened to traffic without street lights.
The river boulevard has a 11.5-meter wide asphalt concrete road pavement (7.0 m wide carriageway, 2.0m road shoulder, and 2.5m wide parallel parking bay) and 5-meter wide public resting area on both sides.
Here are shots at ground level.
