Maysan Road is one of the main east–west thoroughfares of Valenzuela, Philippines. It is a narrow street with only one lane in each direction making it one of the most congested streets in northern Metro Manila. It runs for approximately 4.5 kilometers (2.8 mi) from MacArthur Highway in barangay Malinta, past the North Luzon Expressway intersection, into North Caloocan.[1] The road connects the central Valenzuela barangays of Malinta, Maysan, Paso de Blas, and Bagbaguin. It was the main access road for vehicles going to Valenzuela and the Manila North Harbor from the North Luzon Expressway prior to the construction of NLEX Segment 9 (NLEX Karuhatan Link), which parallels it to the south.[2]


The street is named for the barangay it traverses near MacArthur Highway. Maysan, in turn, comes from the Filipino word "maisan" which means "corn field."[3] It is also known by several different names depending on the barangay it goes through, such as Paso de Blas Road in Paso de Blas and Bagbaguin Road in Bagbaguin. It is also sometimes called Malinta Road as the road that originates in Barangay Malinta that goes to and from the North Luzon Expressway's Paso De Blas Interchange (formerly Malinta Interchange).
