The westbound half will be closed from 10pm to 5am from July 15 until November 26. Meanwhile, the eastbound half will be inaccessible at the same time from August 8 to December 6. To guide motorists, the DOTr has provided graphics for possible alternative routes.

While the road closure may be inconvenient, it is only temporary and is a necessary step in improving public transportation for the benefit and convenience of commuters.
