The race to finish the Christmas gift list just got more challenging this weekend as the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announces a scheduled road reblocking and repair that will be done on major roads in Quezon City starting December 4 at 10PM until December 7 at 5AM.

According to the MMDA, the Department of Public Works and Highways – National Capital Region will be sending teams to work on the rightmost lane of EDSA southbound between Aurora Boulevard and P. Tuazon street and also on the northbound part EDSA between New York Street and K-10 street, 2nd lane from the right.

The reblocking is part of the maintenance of these roads and the MMDA says it will be passable by December 7, 2015 after 5AM.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes to avoid being caught in traffic during this weekend.
