MANILA - A traffic rerouting scheme would be implemented north of Manila starting July 20 to give way to the construction of a section of the NLEX Harbor Link, the Metro Manila Development Authority said Thursday.
The rerouting will allow the construction of an elevated road crossing over Navotas River along C3, which is part of the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 C3-R10 section, the MMDA said in a statement.
Starting 11 p.m. on Saturday, a part of the C3 bridge will be temporarily closed until the project completion in November 2019, the advisory said.
Light vehicles coming from C3 Road going to Radial Road 10 and vice versa will be rerouted along Dagat-Dagatan Avenue and Lapu-Lapu Avenue, while heavy vehicles will still be allowed to use the 2-way traffic route at the remaining bound of C3 Bridge, the MMDA said.
“We are advising motorists to plan their trips ahead and, at the same time, seek their understanding as the partial closure of C3 Bridge is necessary to complete this project on time," said MMDA general manager Jojo Garcia.
Traffic marshals will be deployed by the MMDA and the NLEX Corp to minimize slowdown, the statement said.
