    A BRIDGE TOO FAR Motorists as well as commuters in Manila will have to come up with a better plan on how to cross the Pasig River as the already jammed crossing will have one bridge less beginning today with the month-long total closure of the Ayala Bridge. The bridge, which was first built of wood in 1872 and was reconstructed in steel in 1908 to become the first steel bridge in the country, will undergo massive rehabilitation.

    A BRIDGE TOO FAR Motorists as well as commuters in Manila will have to come up with a better plan on how to cross the Pasig River as the already jammed crossing will have one bridge less beginning today with the month-long total closure of the Ayala Bridge. The bridge, which was first built of wood in 1872 and was reconstructed in steel in 1908 to become the first steel bridge in the country, will undergo massive rehabilitation.

    TO give way to its full rehabilitation, Ayala Bridge will be closed to traffic from March 20 to April 20.

    Manila City Hall said from April 20 to July 20, the bridge will allow one lane traffic, but only for light vehicles. This means the bridge will be off-limits to delivery trucks for four months.

    Meanwhile, the Metro Manila Development Authority has released traffic advisories for motorists: Those coming from Romualdez Street are advised to turn left to Ayala Boulevard then right to Taft Avenue.

    Those coming from Roxas Boulevard or Taft Avenue must take Quezon Bridge or McArthur Bridge or Jones Bridge.

    Motorists coming from Magsaysay Avenue, Legarda Street and Lacson Avenue must take Nagtahan Bridge or Mabini Bridge to reach President Quirino Avenue.

    Southbound vehicles from P. Casal Street may take Carlos Palanca Road to reach McArthur Bridge.
