Expect heavier-than-usual traffic at certain areas around Metro Manila until the end of the month, as the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has just announced that it will be conducting roadwork over the next few days.

The MMDA in its latest statement confirmed that there will be imminent lane closures at 19 intersections in the metro. This will be done to make way for the agency’s traffic signalization project. The agency said there will also be new LED lights installed at the covered intersections.

There are separate daytime and nighttime schedules for certain intersections, and different activities will be conducted at each one. You can refer to the list below for a more detailed look:
