The Department of Public Works and Highways has begun its concrete reblocking and repair activities on EDSA and three other national roads within Metro Manila for this weekend.
According to the agency, as of 10pm of April 11, five of its National Capital Region engineering district offices have been supervising the repair of the identified damaged segments on EDSA between the cities of Pasay and Caloocan. The DPWH hopes to reopen the repaved portions by 6am of April 15.
The repairs are being done in the following areas:
In Caloocan City:
In Quezon City:
In Mandaluyong City:
In Makati City:
In Pasay City:
According to DPWH secretary Rogelio Singson, the needed repairs will improve the serviceability of highly traveled roads, and that "the temporary inconvenience cannot outweigh the advantage of the new concrete pavement with a longer performance period."
