A couple of weeks ago the DPWH started work on the outer lane of the C5 Ortigas flyover. In fact, the repairs took longer than expected, now though with the outer lane complete the roadworks agency is set to start the repairs of the inner lane.
DPWH Inner lane repairs to begin
According to a post on the official Facebook page of the DPWH, the inner lane repair works are set to begin starting January 21, 2023, until February 21, 2023 (1 month).
From December 2, 2022, to January 15, 2023, the 3.5-meter first lane of the southbound portions of the two flyovers underwent chipping works, including the installation of new bridge expansion joints on identified spans, and is now passable to all types of vehicles. In his report to Regional Director Loreta M. Malaluan, MM1st District Engineer Medel F. Chua stated that the same repair works will be conducted to the four meters of the inner lane of the two flyovers to complete the rehabilitation project.
Heavier traffic is expected for the duration of the repair activities and curing period. DPWH NCR advises all motorists with wide vehicles to use service roads as alternate routes during the scheduled time of construction work (10:00 PM-5:00 AM) since only 3.5 meters are passable on the outer lane. The project will replace the old bridge expansion joints, allowing more stability to the structural integrity of the bridges.
