MMDA to partially close portion of EDSA-Kamuning flyover starting May

MANILA: The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will partially close the southbound portion of the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA)-Kamuning flyover in Quezon City from May 1.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • When will the road closure commence?

    Per MMDA, the partial road closure will commence on May 1.
  • Why will the government rehabilitate the flyover?

    According to MMDA, the flyover will be rehabilitated to help strengthen the bridge and avoid further damage against natural disasters.
  • Per the agency, the said section will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic for six months to give way for the rehabilitation of the southbound segment of the flyover.

    The Department of Public Works and Highways will begin the by-phase retrofitting of the southbound section of the EDSA-Kamuning flyover on April 25. The said undertaking will help strengthen the bridge and avoid further damage against natural disasters like earthquakes.

    “The retrofitting of the Kamuning flyover is a significant step in the government's efforts to rehabilitate structures in preparation for ‘The Big One’ in case it happens,” MMDA wrote in a statement.

    In a press conference, MMDA Acting Chairman Attorney Don Artes advised motorists to avoid the said area as re-decking works will take up one-and-a-half lanes but will remain accessible for buses in the EDSA Carousel busway.

    “Even though the flyover will be partially closed during the rehabilitation, it will still be passable to public utility buses on the EDSA bus carousel,” Artes noted.

    “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 added.

    Private vehicles are advised to take the following alternate routes:

    • From EDSA/Quezon Avenue (southbound) make a right turn to Panay Avenue
    • From Panay Avenue make a left turn to Sergeant Esguerra Avenue
    • From Sergeant Esguerra Avenue make a left turn to Timog Avenue

    • From Mother Ignacia Avenue make a left turn to Sergeant Esguerra Avenue
    • From EDSA/Quezon Avenue (southbound) make a right turn to Panay Avenue or Mother Ignacia Avenue
    • From Panay Avenue or Mother lgnacia Avenue make a Left turn to Sergeant Esguerra Avenue
    • From Sergeant Esguerra Avenue continue straight to 11th Jamboree

    Prior to the start of the partial closure, the MMDA will conduct intensified clearing operations in the vicinity to ensure there are no obstructions on the aforementioned alternate routes. The said operations will be carried out in coordination with the Department of Transportation, Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group, Quezon City local government unit, and concerned barangay officials.

    The agency will also study whether emergency vehicles can be allowed to use the busway in the flyover on a case-to-case basis.
