Davao City Expressway is an expressway currently under feasibility study. It was proposed by the current president of the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte, to mitigate the congestion on the Pan Philippine Highway through Davao City.
The expressway will have an overall length of 23.3km, which is divided into three different phases. The Phase I, Phase II and Phase III of the expressway is connected in the Carlos P. Garcia National Highway; however, the Phase II will be much further north, which starts from the soon to exist Panacan Interchange.
The DavEx will be completed in 2022.
