Heading down south over the weekend via CAVITEX? Be advised that you should plan your drive in advance as roadworks will be conducted this weekend along the expressway.
From March 14 to March 15, Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) will close down two lanes during off-peak hours in order to give way to ongoing roadworks along the southbound direction of the Wawa Bridge. This operation is a follow-up to the girder launching conducted along the southbound section of the Las Pinas Bridge last February 24 and 25.
During the said dates, girders will be lifted and installed along the Kawit-bound segment of the said bridge. The girder launching will take place between the hours of 12:00 AM to 10:00 AM, and there will be a 30-minute stop-and-go traffic during the lifting of the girders.
A counterflow traffic scheme will be in effect for vehicles bound for Kawit. However, CAVITEX reminded motorists that they are only allowed to reach speeds of up to 60 km/h while using the counterflow lane.
One finished, the ultimate goal of the road project is to widen the Las Pinas, Wawa, and Paranaque bridges from three lanes to four lanes.
“Upon completion of the second phase of this project by Q2 of 2020, we will be able to make more room for motorists plying Cavitex, especially now that our traffic volume has increased by 9% since January 2019. Our traffic management plans are in place, we will be deploying marshals in areas under construction,” said Bobby Bontia, president and GM of CIC.
