Ozamiz City will continue to progress with the implementation of various infrastructure projects.

  • The PANGUIL BAY BRIDGE or the BRIDGE OF PEACE will connect Misamis Occidental and Lanao del Norte provinces. The bridge will cut short the travel time between the two provinces. At present, the Daima shipping lines connect the two provinces using their Roll on Roll off vessels crossing Panguil Bay. The construction of the bridge is considered by NEDA as one of the three big ticket infra projects for Region 10 based on its 2008 State of the Region report. It is also the ultimate dream project of Mis. Occ. Governor Loreto Ocampos during his term. Geophysical survey and geotechnical investigation on its site is on going and the construction will commence in 2010 as reported by Regional Development Council chairman Gov. Jesus Romualdo on May 26, 2009.
  • The OZAMIZ COASTAL BYPASS ROAD / BOULEVARD with a total length of 6.4 km will traverse 6 barangays from Barangay Malaubang to Barangay Catadman-Mangga. This on-going project aims to decongest the worsening traffic at the city proper where big cargo trucks and container vans going to and from the pier still ply the city main thoroughfares. North and South bound vehicles will utilize this coastal road once completed to avoid traffic at the city proper main streets. This project being undertaken by DPWH with a P400M budget is set to be completed in 2010. The 60 hectares reclaimed land area in 4 Barangays (Malaubang, Tinago, Sta. Cruz and San Roque) will be developed into a new commercial business district of the city.
  • BUKAGAN HILL will be developed into a tourist attraction and a pilgrimage destination with initial P10M budget in 2009. The Master development plan of Bukagan Hill includes construction of a huge statue of the Virgin Mary looking over the city proper and Panguil bay, installation of stations of the cross along the spiral uphill road, construction of a chapel and re-installation of the 3 huge European bells at the bell tower. This project is a joint effort of Mis. Occ. District 2 Cong. Herminia Ramiro, Ozamiz city Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Senator Richard Gordon and the Dept. of Tourism.
  • Construction of the OZAMIZ-CLARIN-TUDELA-SINACABAN MOUNTAIN ROAD with a budget of P400M.
  • The on-going extension and expansion of OZAMIZ AIRPORT runway to accommodate bigger aircraft, airport perimeter fencing, installation of luggage conveyor at the new arrival building, asphalt overlay and PAPI lights installation at the runway, construction of administration building and a bigger parking area will be completed in 2009.
  • Construction of the 5.8 km long CLARIN-OZAMIZ CIRCUMFERENTIAL-AIRPORT LINK and BARANGAY GANGO-BACOLOD-CARANGAN-BAÑADERO ROAD with a P247M budget.

  • Expansion of the OZAMIZ SEAPORT with P300M budget will start in 2008 in order to accommodate more sea vessels and improve its services. Storage facilities will also be constructed. It will soon become an international sea port. Ozamiz port is one of the busiest seaport in Mindanao.
  • PEACE VILLAGE – to be constructed at Brgy Gala.
  • The Misamis Occidental Special Economic Zone (MOSEZ) house bill was filed at the House of Representatives by Misamis Occidental District 2 Congresswoman Herminia Ramiro.
