No planned road closures so far

News has just broken that the Department of Public Works and Highways will begin rehabilitation work on the Magallanes Flyover by next week. There’s no need to be alarmed as it won’t be closed off to vehicles—at least for now, as construction will begin at the foundation.

Rehabilitation of the flyover’s lanes will follow after the roadwork at the EDSA-Kamuning Flyover is completed, hopefully earlier than the deadline in October. DPWH NCR director Loreta Malaluan said that light vehicles will be able to pass in the outer lanes while the expansion joints are being replaced. This retrofitting is expected to be finished in nine months.

Malaluan also mentioned that the Guadalupe Bridge will undergo rehabilitation before the end of the year. However, there will be a detour bridge for light vehicles. Hopefully, more details will be released soon so motorists can prepare their routes before road closures are implemented.
