Three sections will be closed to traffic at different stages
If you frequent the U.N. Avenue area on a daily basis, you might want to readjust your timing as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is set to fix it to improve traffic flow.
The DPWH has announced that a round-the-clock road rehabilitation and improvement project is set to begin along an 840 lineal meter section of U.N. Avenue on Monday, October 10, 2016 at 7PM.
DPWH National Capital Region Director Melvin B. Navarro wants a 24/7 work scheme in order to ensure that the project finishes on-time or even earlier.
Drainage work along with road improvements will be done from Taft Avenue to Estero de Paco Bridge to make U.N. Avenue traffic faster and safer for motorists.
The DPWH will implement work on U.N. Avenue by sections beginning with the closure of the portion from Taft Avenue to San Marcelino Street followed by the San Marcelino Street to Romualdez Street, then finally from Romualdez Street to Estero de Paco Bridge.
Motorists are advised to find alternate routes to avoid getting stuck in traffic.
