Heavy traffic along Skyway is a common sight on, say, a Friday evening. That’s just the usual weekend for you. On a Tuesday afternoon? Well. that’s not something you see every week.
That’s what’s happening along the elevated tollway right now. About an hour ago as of this writing, a netizen just tweeted a photo of the southbound section near the NAIA Expressway (NAIAX) off-ramp. It showed heavy traffic buildup around the Magallanes portion of the tollway. What gives?

Apparently, there are one-lane closures along the westbound and eastbound portions of NAIAX, and it looks like the slowdown caused by the former has spilled over to Skyway. That means if you’re headed southbound via the expressway later today, then expect heavy traffic along the way.
The lanes will supposedly be closed “starting September 27” to make way for road widening and other construction activities, but no end date was mentioned. In any case, if you drive through Skyway regularly, we advise you to plan your trips accordingly.
