Commuters, Expect Heavy Traffic in Pasig This Weekend

It's the most wonderful time of the year in Pasig!

( At this point, we’re used to being stuck in traffic in different areas around the Metro, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn't try to avoid it when we can. The Pasig Command Center released advisories announcing traffic rerouting and road closures in Pasig this weekend from Friday to Sunday, December 7 to December 9, due to various activities in the area.
