Marcos Bridge-Eastbound Portion Closed Starting May 25, 2019

After previous postponements, the rehabilitation on a portion of Marcos Bridge will finally proceed on Saturday, May 25, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced today.


MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia said the eastbound portion of Marcos Bridge along Marcos Highway will be closed starting 11 pm.

“After two weeks of preparations, it is definite now. Marcos Bridge will be closed for the next four months to give way to its long-overdue rehabilitation,” said Garcia, in a news briefing held on Thursday.

Light vehicles going to Antipolo may take the westbound direction while light vehicles going Cubao may use the service road in front of SM Marikina mall.

Rehabilitation works on the bridge was originally set to start on May 4 but was postponed after several ocular inspections showed that the contractor was not fully prepared to proceed with the project.

“Private contractors are now ready to push through with the rehabilitation after complying with the necessary requirements they need to address,” said Garcia.

The bridge, built in 1979, at the boundary of Marikina and Pasig cities, has an average daily traffic of 6,400 vehicles per hour in both directions.

Road traffic advisories were also installed around the site of the project.
