Do you frequently travel from Bukidnon to Iligan City? Here’s good news! Travel time between these two major Mindanao areas is now reduced by roughly 2 hours because of the Sta. Felomina – Bonbonon – Digkilaan – Rogongon route.
Traditionally, travelers need to pass through Cagayan de Oro. However, because of this new Iligan to Bukidnon road, travelers now have an alternative route – a time-saving option.
Technically, this road serves between Iligan City and Talakag town in Bukidnon.
This 60.40 km road section in Iligan City is part of the Mindanao East-West Lateral Road that involves opening and concreting of roads with cross drainage, safety road improvements and lined canal, according to DPWH.
Do take note, though, that some parts of this route remain unfinished. Still, it’s already passable and may be used especially if you’re from Iligan and you’re heading to Bukidnon for the yearly Kaamulan Festival.

Looks like the route goes through long stretches of uninhabited land that questions arise regarding the safety of travelers who choose to use this new route.
