(SPOT.ph) A portion of Roxas Boulevard's southbound lanes will be closed to motorists starting January 15 to give way to repair works, announced the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority. The closed-off area starts in front of the HK Sun Plaza in Pasay City up util the EDSA-Roxas Boulevard flyover.
If you're a regular user of these southbound lanes, then you may want to take note of the alternate routes set up by the agency. This closure is expected to last for 60 days, said Mikunug Macud of the Department of Public Works and Highways South Manila District Engineering Office.

Repair works are needed for a "damaged box culvert" of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), said the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) in a statement on January 12. The agency had alerted the public in December that the southbound lanes of this thoroughfare may need to be closed off for two to three months.
Around 800 cargo trucks and 1,000 trailers use the southbound lanes daily, noted the MMDA. Authorities assured that they will deploy traffic enforcers in the area; alternate routes—for both light and heavy vehicles—have also been set. Note that there will also be a zipper lane!
