EDSA-Kamuning Flyover

Last week, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) authorized the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to commence retrofitting work on the southbound lane of the EDSA Kamuning Flyover. If you feel like this announcement has happened before, don’t worry, you’re not alone. A few years back, the southbound portion of the EDSA-Kamuning flyover was closed off for a month for repairs, this time, however, the time frame will take way longer than just one month.

According to the DPWH, retrofitting will commence on April 25, 2024, and will last for 11 months as the government agency prepares for the “Big One.” The retrofitting project will take up one and a half lanes, beginning from the outermost lane and extending towards the EDSA Busway lane. Both the DPWH and the MMDA assure that the operations of the EDSA Busway will remain unaffected.

DPWH-National Capital Region project inspector Paul Chua cautioned the public to anticipate significant traffic congestion during the repair period. Motorists are advised to utilize the Mabuhay lanes as alternative routes. Meanwhile, the MMDA announced it will undertake essential measures to mitigate the potential traffic disruptions in the area. The agency plans to bolster its clearing operations within the vicinity and has collaborated with authorities and local government units to assist in redirecting and regulating traffic flow effectively.

“The re-decking of the flyover cannot be deferred. We assure the public that we will manage the traffic in such a way that the impact of the repair is minimal to the motorists.”

In addition to the forthcoming repairs on the flyover, the DPWH will also undertake a minimum of 14 roadwork projects across Metro Manila, scheduled to conclude by April 10 or 11.

The MMDA strategically plans to align these repairs with the upcoming weekend and successive holidays on April 9 and 10.
