After being damaged by tropical depression Agaton, the Mambayaan Bridge in Balingasag is now passable to all types of vehicles since 10:00pm last night through the joint efforts of the Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental led by Gov. Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano, the local government unit of Balingasag, and the DPWH. The photo below shows the governor supervising the filling of rocks and earthfill materials.
The Mambayaan Bridge connects Cagayan de Oro to the eastern portion of Misamis Oriental (from Lagonglong to Magsaysay) and the CARAGA Region. As of now, there have been no recommended alternate routes.
Meanwhile, the landslide in Anakan, Gingoog City was also cleared from debris and is now passable.
