Don’t worry. It’s not a full closure

If you’re travelling within the Manila City Hall’s vicinity, be prepared to brace for heavy traffic. That’s because the rehabilitation of Lagusnilad vehicular underpass has begun, and the roadworks project will take about four months to finish.

That said, the vehicular underpass won’t be impassable for the time being. One lane of traffic will remain open, so motorists headed for Taft Avenue may still take this route. Of course, there is an alternate route available to relieve the expected congestion in that area.

Once completed, motorists can expect smoother pavement along the vehicular underpass, along with an improved dredging system to prevent flooding that often affects the area.
