The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has declared that installation activities are scheduled for the Roxas Boulevard-Edsa flyover’s northbound lane.
In an advisory, the DPWH-South Manila District Engineering Office (DPWH-SMDEO) said that the four-day repair work will start on Tuesday.
“Roxas Boulevard-EDSA Flyover (Northbound) to be closed for rehabilitation/construction,” DPWH-SMDEO said in a statement on December 23.
As per the DPWH-SMDEO, the primary objective of the project is to install the two remaining expansion joints on the Roxas Boulevard-Edsa Flyover in Pasay City, and these will occur between December 26 and December 30.
The DPWH-SMEDEO also advised motorists heading northbound to expect traffic delays and consider using different routes.
“Motorists heading northbound are advised of traffic slowdown, and to take alternate route at the EDSA Flyover service road, since the affected area is temporarily closed,” the DWPH-SMDEO said in a statement.
Pasay and Parañaque local governments have also cautioned drivers about potential moderate to heavy traffic on the northbound lane of the EDSA-Roxas Boulevard flyover until December 30, attributing it to the ongoing repair and rehabilitation efforts.
The Parañaque Traffic Parking and Management Office (TPMO) has informed the public about anticipated moderate to heavy traffic resulting from the ongoing repair and rehabilitation of the EDSA flyover by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). Drivers have been recommended to steer clear of the affected area to prevent inconvenience and to opt for alternative routes.
For those traveling from Parañaque, it was suggested to use Macapagal Avenue or Diokno Boulevard to reach their destinations. The TPMO also mentioned that extra traffic enforcers will be stationed to oversee traffic flow in the designated area.
