National Route 10 (N10) is a 278-kilometer (173 mi) primary national route that forms part of the Philippine highway network and a spur of Asian Highway 26 (AH26) of the Asian Highway Network. It connects the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon and Davao del Sur.[1][2][3][4][5]

History

Two roads were designated as N10 during the addition of the national routes in 2014 by the Department of Public Works and Highways, namely Sayre Highway (Cagayan de Oro to Maramag) and Bukidnon–Davao Road (Maramag to Davao).

Asian Highway Network

The entire route forms the Mindanao spur of the Asian Highway 26 of the Asian Highway Network.[6][7] As it is part of the said network, the route markers are different as the shield is significantly smaller and is inside a blue quadilateral with a thick white outline.
