Traffic to be rerouted for 2016 State of the Nation Address
On Monday, July 25, 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte will be delivering his first State of the Nation Address at the Batasang Pambansa Complex. The MMDA is advising motorists to avoid passing though Commonweath Avenue and take alternate routes instead.
For those coming from Fairview, turn right at Fairlane Street and right into Dahlia Avenue. Along Dahlia, turn left at Chestnut and turn right at Republic Avenue. This will take motorists to Old Sauyo road and eventually lead them to Mindanao Avenue. Head straight along Mindanao Avenue to reach North Avenue.
Another alternative is to take Quirino Highway. This road will also lead to Mindanao Avenue. Continue straight to reach North Avenue. A traffic management plan has also been provided for public utility vehicles.
The MMDA, as well as the Philippine National Police, will be assisting motorists during SONA. Quezon City has declared the suspension of classes on that day.
