Sandiganbayan to Litex closed until 12 midnight

In what appears to be a lack of coordination and advanced warning Quezon City traffic officials, thousands of motorists and commuters were surprised by heavy traffic this morning along Commonwealth Avenue. This is due to a medical and dental mission by the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Locale of Capitol.

The scheduled outreach activity which started earlier today at 11:00 AM is scheduled to end at 12:00 midnight. Today's activity sees the closure of the entire eastbound lanes of Commonwealth Avenue which stretches from Sandiganbayan to LITEX. The MMDA has implemented a rerouting scheme for those who will be passing through the road tonight.

Motorists traveling to Fairview will turn right at Batasang Pambansa which exits at the Litex Wet and Dry Market. For public utility vehicles, the MMDA has set up a couterflow lane in Commonwealth's westbound lanes. Another alternate route is through Mindanao Avenue into Sauyo Road.
