Pasig Commuters, You Might Want to Leave Work Early Tomorrow

Heavy traffic is expected from the city's own Black Nazarene Procession.

( Pasig folks, if you think you're safe from the heavy traffic that comes with the activities for the Black Nazarene Procession in Manila, you thought wrong. Religious activities will be observed at Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral tomorrow, January 9. The Pasig Command Center released an advisory announcing alternate routes for motorists to avoid the resulting traffic from the expected crowd joining the activities. The worst part? This will be adding to the evening rush hour traffic.
