During this time, motorists are advised to take the following alternate routes:

Vehicles going to Bonifacio Global City (BGC) via Lawton Street (from East Rembo or West Rembo):

  • Along J.P. Rizal Street, turn left to Sgt. Fabian Yabut Street in Guadalupe Nuevo and head toward Kalayaan Avenue. From Kalayaan Avenue, make a U-turn at the corner of Edsa-Kalayaan Avenue, then turn right to 32nd Street to destination.

Private and public utility vehicles going to Pasig or Pateros via Kalayaan Avenue:

  • From EDSA, turn right to Kalayaan Avenue. Heavy traffic is expected before Lawton or Kalayaan intersection, so a stop-and-go scheme will be implemented in the area.

Private and public utility vehicles going to BGC via Lawton Avenue:

  • Along J.P. Rizal Avenue, turn right to West Cloverleaf, and turn right to EDSA-southbound. From EDSA, turn left to McKinley-Ayala Avenue intersection and head toward BGC or C5 to destination.

Private vehicles coming from Mandaluyong City along EDSA going to BGC via West Cloverleaf, J.P. Rizal, and Lawton Avenue:

  • Head straight to EDSA/Ayala Avenue/McKinley intersection. Turn left to McKinley Street and head toward BGC area or C5 Road to destination.
