The second phase of the rehabilitation work will be done on a 122.60-meter stretch spanning Retiro Street until Calavite Street. The outer lane along this stretch will be affected and the work is scheduled from April 28 to May 12. As above, do expect the inner lane to be repaired within the said timeframe as well.

Partial road closure to give way to the said DPWH rehabilitation efforts will have to be implemented from the aforementioned construction dates. Until such time, specifically May 12, motorists are advised of traffic slowdown in the affected areas and to use possible alternate routes.

Be patient out there, everyone.
