Pleasant news for you Bulakenyos: A new bypass road connecting Meycauayan and Marilao is now open.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the Department of Transportation (DOTr), and the NLEX Corporation have officially opened the Meycauayan-Marilao East Service Road. This two-lane road serves as an alternate route for motorists going in and out of the two areas.

The road occupies a portion of the North Luzon Expressway right of way in Barangay Lias, Marilao. It bypasses MacArthur Highway, providing motorists coming in from Paso de Blas, Valenzuela City direct access to Lias, Marilao. The new bypass road is also expected to ease traffic at the Meycauayan Interchange during rush hour.
