Watch Out for Heavy Traffic All Around the Metro This Weekend
Reconsider passing through these roads in EDSA, Quezon City, and Manila for the next two days.
(SPOT.ph) We all want better roads in Metro Manila, but in the process, something's got to give. Every weekend, when the city's roads are supposedly lighter, the Department of Public Works and Highways resumes its mission to improve the roads around Metro Manila. Unfortunately, this results in weekly heavy traffic jams. And it looks like this weekend is no exception—the Metro Manila Development Authority announced that certain roads in EDSA, Quezon City, and Manila will be blocked off from motorists to make way for the Department of Public Works and Highways' road repairs. Road reblocking will run from Friday, June 29 to Monday, July 2.
Motorists are advised to avoid the following roads and take alternate routes:
EDSA, before Trinoma Mall Landmark, second lane from sidewalk
Batasan Road, from Commonwealth Avenue to Kalinisan Street, second lane
Arsenio H. Lacson Avenue, near España
- Congressional Avenue, before Jupiter Street, first lane
- Fairview Avenue, from Mindanao Avenue Extension to Jordan Plains Subdivision
- EDSA, after Arayat Street to P. Tuazon Street, fourth lane from the sidewalk
- EDSA, in front of Francesca Tower to after Scout Borromeo, third lane from center island
