The Davao River Bridge, also called Bucana Bridge, will be located at the estuary of Davao River.

The bridge, a dual two-lanes with a total length of around 1,340 meters, is anticipated to ease “east-west traffic congestion in the coastal areas of the city and divert about 35,000 vehicles every day, tremendously improve travel efficiency and help boost the rapid development of the local socio-economy.”

During the construction period, some 300 to 500 locals are eyed to work on the completion of the bridge.
