MANILA – The southbound portion of the Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) – Kamuning flyover will be partially closed beginning May 1 to make way for its rehabilitation.
In a press conference in Pasig City on Monday, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) acting chair Romando Artes said the retrofitting of the flyover aims to strengthen the bridge and as a preventive measure against natural disasters like earthquakes.
"It is expected to fully open to vehicular traffic on October 25," Artes said.
The project, he said, will begin on April 25 and is part of the government's efforts to rehabilitate structures in preparation for "The Big One" – a theoretical large earthquake that results from active faults that have not generated any historical surface-rupturing events.
He advised motorists to avoid the area as re-decking works will occupy one and a half lanes, with the remaining open lane will be for the exclusive use of the EDSA busway.
"Although the southbound lane of the Kamuning flyover will not be entirely closed, we are advising the motorists, especially private vehicles, to use the Mabuhay Lanes as alternate routes to avoid heavy traffic expected due to the re-decking works," he said.
To avoid traffic buildup in alternate routes, the MMDA will conduct clearing operations in coordination with the Department of Transportation, Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group, Quezon City government, and barangay officials.
He recommended the following alternate routes for motorists affected by the closure:
  • From EDSA/Quezon Avenue southbound make a right turn to Panay Avenue.
  • From Panay Avenue make a left turn to Sgt. Esguerra Avenue.
  • From Sgt. Esguerra Avenue make a left turn to Timog Avenue.
