Makati Avenue from Valdez Street to Kalayaan Avenue in Makati City will be closed by 12 midnight of June 22, Friday, to make way for the celebration of Fête De La Musique, a music festival organized by the French Embassy in partnership with the city government of Makati.
To be held along Makati Avenue in the A. Venue-Kalayaan area, the street will be closed to traffic from 12 midnight of Friday until the end of the program on Saturday.
The Makati Department of Public Safety is therefore advising motorists to expect heavy traffic near the area and to avoid it by taking alternative routes.
Public-utility jeepneys and light vehicles from Guadalupe area should take J.P. Rizal, turn left on Reposo, and then turn on either Kalayaan or Jupiter toward their destination. Those coming from Manila to Guadalupe should follow the existing route toward the Guadalupe area.
Likewise, vehicles from Mandaluyong should take J.P. Rizal toward their destination, while vehicles from Makati's central business district that are going toward Mandaluyong should turn right on Burgos Street from Makati Avenue to reach their destination.
