The highway's name was Route 3 but was changed to Sayre Highway's, in honor of Francis Bowes Sayre, Sr., the U.S. Philippine High Commissioner who spearheaded its construction. It extends southward through central Mindanao for a distance of about 100 miles, linking the northern and southern arms of Route 1 (Digos-Butuan Highway). This section of the Philippine national highway was constructed during the American occupation of the Philippines.
The parts of the highway are composed of National Route 10 (N10), a spur route of Asian Highway 26 in the north; and National Route 943 (N943) in the southern portion of the Philippine highway network.
