The Department of Public Works and Highways will reportedly start construction on two projects that it hopes will ease traffic on EDSA.
According to GMANetwork.com, the first project is the Metro Manila Interchange Construction Project Phase VI, which refers to the construction of two two-level interchanges. One will be the EDSA-North Avenue-West Avenue interchange, which will start at the end of the Quezon Avenue flyover and end at the Dario Bridge in Muñoz, and two is the Mindanao Avenue interchange, which will begin on Congressional Avenue in Muñoz and end on Mindanao Avenue. The total cost of the project, which is said to include the construction of a third interchange, will cost P4.01 billion.
The second project is the construction of the Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue underpass in Makati City, which we first reported in October. Expected to cost P1.27 billion, the 600m tunnel will traverse the length of Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue between the intersections of Makati Avenue and Paseo de Roxas.
The report added that both projects are expected to be finished as early as mid-2016 to as late as the first quarter of 2017.
