THE 53.4-kilometer Kibawe-Kadingilan-Kalilangan (KKK) Road in Bukidnon, which is expected to cut travel time by half to one hour between the towns of Kibawe and Kalilangan, is almost complete, the Department of Public Works and Highways-Northern Mindanao (DPWH-10) announced yesterday. “With the completion of KKK Road, we expect to increase not just the economic activity in Region 10 but also to provide unhampered access to the thousands of motorists traversing the network,” DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar said in a statement. The project is also seen to provide a better link between Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental. Under the 2018 national budget, P101 million was allocated for the last phase of the road project, which covers road paving and stone masonry of a 2.287-kilometer road section along the national road that will improve the Cagayan de Oro-Bukidnon link. Eight bridges along the entire road length were also included, namely: Malatipay, Manubiray, Kiorayag, Mig-asa, Kidangin, Ukitan, Mulita, and Apolang.
