The DPWH has announced that the 3-lane southbound EDSA-Ortigas flyover will be closed for rehabilitation works. Coinciding with the Holy Week holiday, the repairs are slated to be done from April 6, 8:00 AM to April 10, 11:59 PM. Everyone is advised to consider and take alternate routes should they find themselves southbound along EDSA.
DPWH will repair EDSA-Ortigas flyover from April 6-10
The Department of Public Works and Highways wants to take “advantage of less motorists traversing the area during the Holy Week” and has decided to carry out its repair works on the said flyover beginning Thursday of this week. The repairs will involve fixing the damage observed in the expansion joints. Do note that only the Southbound portion of the flyover will be closed to traffic and that the Northbound side will remain accessible and passable to vehicles during this time.
The closure of lanes filtering into the Southbound flyover will start in front of PGA Cars and will span until the front of CSP Building after crossing above Ortigas Avenue. After the repairs have been completed, the DPWH said motorists coming from Pasig City, Quezon City, and other nearby areas can expect improved riding surface as well as strengthened overall bridge structural integrity.
The DPWH NCR has committed that the flyover will be re-opened to traffic once the rectified lanes are fully cured on April 10, 2023 to avoid heavy traffic during the return of Offices.
Many are expected to go on an exodus outside of Metro Manila, but for those who will be staying, consider yourselves advised. If the cards are played right, then the anticipation of less vehicles plying this particular route will help avoid any untoward incidents, but regardless, make sure to consider other routes to get to the South, yes?
Take care out there, folks!
