The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the construction of the flood control structure that will protect the public in Cabanglasan, Bukidnon against the overflowing river during heavy rains of long duration
Completed along Bobonawan River in Barangay Cabulohan in Bukidnon, the P57.2-million project involves the construction of a dike reinforced concrete, which has a length of 340 meters and a height of six meters, “will protect people’s lives and property, and areas close to the river will be better shielded from potential flooding during severe rainfall.’’
“We hope that this project will no longer cause the displacement of locals in the occurrence of typhoons and heavy rains and help increase economic activities in the area to further promote local industries and tourism in the Province of Bukidnon,” the DPWH Region 10 Office Director Zenaida Tan noted.
The project is implemented by DPWH Bukidnon 1st District Engineering Office headed by District Engineer Flordelis C. Enriquez and Assistant District Engineer Jan Paulo C. Lisondra funded under the General Appropriations Act of 2023. (Trixee Rosel/MANILA BULLETIN-Nov 22, 2023 03:47 PM)

MALAYBALAY CITY — Heavy rains spawned by an Intertropical Convergence Zone flooded several areas in Malaybalay City, Valencia City, and Lantapan town in Bukidnon on the night of June 21, damaging some houses, displacing at least 189 families or 613 individuals, and killing one, reports said
The displaced families, who sought refuge at their respective barangay-covered courts, came from Barangays Violeta, San Jose, Linabo, Simaya, and Sinanglanan in Malaybalay City, according to a report from the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Division (PDRRMD).
But photos and videos shared online showed that the flooding also hit Barangays Cabangahan, Laguitas, Managok, Aglayan, and Bancud in Malaybalay.
Videos shared online showed that raging floodwaters in Aglayan rendered the highway impassable by vehicles. The barangay links Malaybalay to Lantapan and Talakag towns.
The rains triggered a mudslide in Sitio Langasihan in Managok that rendered the road impassable on June 21, night.
But as of 9:00 a.m. June 23, the Department of Public Works and Highways 1st District Engineering Office-Bukidnon issued an advisory that one lane of Junction Sayre Highway Aglayan-Zamboanguita Road in Langasihan was already passable.
“The public is advised to take extreme precaution while traversing the affected road section due to slippery road and falling debris induced by the unstable slope and continuous heavy rainfall,” the advisory said.
Meanwhile, PrimeWater, which now operates the Malaybalay City Water District, said its water supply lines were affected by the floods in Laguitas.
“Water distribution will resume as soon as the repair is done and the water supply has reached our reservoirs,” it said.
In neighboring Valencia City, the PDRRMD reported that floods hit Barangays Lurugan, San Carlos, Bagontaas, Sugod, Mailag, Colonia, Catumbalon, Maapag, Sinayawan, Poblacion, and Batangan.
In Lantapan, only Barangay Songco was hit by flooding.
It was in Lantapan where a fatality was reported—identified as Bryan Ando—but there was no mention as to the circumstances of his death. His body was reportedly retrieved at Subsub in Barangay Bugcaon.
There were no reports of evacuation in Valencia and Lantapan.
A video shared by a netizen showed motorists lining the road from Barangay Laligan to Barangay Concepcion in Valencia while a backhoe was clearing the debris from a mudslide.
Netizens posted photos of the flood in their barangays with pleas for relief goods like rice and water. Some asked for materials for the damaged houses. (H. Marcos C. Mordeno, with reports / MindaNews)
ILIGAN CITY — The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has started work on a temporary road beside the collapsed portion of the Iligan-Bukidnon highway in Barangay Besigan, in the hinterlands of Cagayan de Oro City, so it can soon accommodate vehicular traffic
Engr. Maria David, DPWH district engineer for Iligan City, said the temporary lane that they will build is designed to handle only light vehicles.
On May 5, 2023, morning, DPWH personnel lifted the 10-wheeler truck that fell into the pit created when the road collapsed on April 30.
The truck was fully loaded with falcata logs.
David said they are still awaiting the budget to do full-blown repair work on the damaged road, adding that for 2023, the Iligan City engineering district only had P13 million for road maintenance.
The Iligan-Bukidnon road had been a convenient route for travelers from Lanao del Norte and the Zamboanga Peninsula toward Bukidnon and on to Davao, bypassing the coastal highway leading to Cagayan de Oro City.
However, it is often affected by landslides and road slips. (Richel V. Umel/Inquirer.net)
ILIGAN CITY — The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) temporarily closed starting May 1, 2023, the national highway that snakes through the mountains between Iligan City and Bukidnon province
Engineer Maria Badelles David of DPWH’s Iligan City engineering district said a section of the road in Barangay Besigan, Cagayan de Oro City collapsed when a 10-wheeler truck loaded with falcata logs passed through it on May 1, morning.
No one was reported hurt during the incident.
David said they were still coordinating the use of a crane to lift the truck.
David further said that the road would be closed until repair works are done as they could not build a detour because one side is a cliff while the other is a spring.
David said a road maintenance team would proceed to the site to conduct an inspection and road safety mitigating measures.
The Iligan-Bukidnon road is prone to landslides and road slips and the DPWH engineering district in Iligan City is not yet fully furnished with heavy equipment so it could quickly respond to such situations, David said. (Richel Umel/Inquirer.net)

DAVAO CITY – Drivers of public utility vans, buses, cargo trucks, and multi-axle trucks bound for Bukidnon from Davao del Norte or bound for Davao del Norte from Bukidnon are advised to take the Davao City-Bukidnon route instead as a portion of the highway in San Fernando town in Bukidnon collapsed due to continuous heavy rains.
The travel advisory was issued last January 14 by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in the Davao region.
It said a portion of Talaingod (Davao Del Norte)-Valencia (Bukidnon) road, particularly in Sitio Balacayo in Barangay Kalagangan, “is currently one-lane passable to LIGHT VEHICLES only due to road collapse.”
“Motorists are advised to take necessary precautions while traveling due to the prevailing weather conditions,” it said.
In San Fernando, Bukidnon, the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (LDRRMO) on its Facebook page said the DPWH in Bukidnon and the local government unit are working on the repair. The LDRRMO called on the public not to pass this way “kay dilikado pa gihapon” (because it is still dangerous).
Travel time between Davao del Norte and Bukidnon is shorter via this route compared with the Davao City to Bukidnon route. (MindaNews)
BUTUAN CITY (Jan. 29) – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Caraga is undergoing road construction projects, which will contribute to faster and more convenient travel and delivery of local products in the different parts of the region and Mindanao.
Among these projects include the Agusan-Malaybalay Road worth PHP1.1-billion which is already 77.62 percent complete as of December 2019.
The construction has started in the year 2015 and is expected to be completed this year 2020.
With this development, the locals in Esperanza, Agusan del Sur were delighted and eager to benefit more from the Agusan-Malaybalay Road. It helps them deliver their products easily to the market.
Rosie Echinique, a resident from Esperanza, was emotional in expressing her appreciation to the government. She hoped that this kind of project would benefit more locals and improve their way of living. She also stressed that for almost three decades living in the area, it was only this administration that she experienced to have well-constructed roads.
“We have seen and felt the concern of the government for us and we have high hopes that more Mindanaoans would be able to benefit and experience an improved quality of life,” said Echinique.
Meanwhile, DPWH-Caraga regional director Pol Delos Santos bared that due to the recent earthquakes recorded in some parts of Mindanao, the department has been continuously inspecting various infrastructures in the region, which include the Magsaysay Bridge in Butuan City that was opened to the public since May 19, 1953.
According to Director Delos Santos, the Magsaysay Bridge is still in good condition and was not affected by the series of quakes experienced in Mindanao. (Jennifer P. Gaitano /NCLM, PIA-Agusan del Sur)
