The city government of Caloocan (Metro Manila) has issued an advisory to motorists that there will be traffic rerouting starting midnight tomorrow (Sunday) at the EDSA-Monumento area to give way to celebration of the 151st birth anniversary of revolutionary hero Andres Bonifacio.
Larry Castro, the city’s Department of Public Safety and Traffic Management chief, on Friday said portions of EDSA, Rizal Avenue and Samson Road leading to the Bonifacio Shrine or Monumento will be closed to vehicular traffic from midnight (November 29) up to 9 a.m. (November 30).
Closed to traffic are: Rizal Avenue from 10th Avenue to Monumento, Samson Road from Heroes del 96 to Monumento, EDSA north-bound from B. Serrano to Monumento.
West-bound vehicles (going to Manila) from MacArthur Highway going to Monumento are advised to turn right at Caimito Street leading to Abbey Road toward 10th Avenue then turn right at Rizal Avenue toward Manila, Castro said.
Those coming from MacArthur Highway going to Quezon City are advised to turn left in Monumento toward EDSA, without circling the rotunda. EDSA’s north-bound lane will be turned into south-bound counter-flow lane to B. Serrano.
City public information officer Nolan Sison said actor Robin Padilla, the main character of the movie Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo, will grace the 7 a.m. event while Mayor Oscar Malapitan will deliver the inspirational message.
Meanwhile, a state-of-the-art public market will soon be built at a densely-populated area in Dagat-dagatan with an P80-million grant by the Office of the President to the local government for the purpose.
Rep. Edgar Erice (District 2) told the Camanava Press Corps officers, who recently paid a courtesy call at the former’s district office, that the proposed modern public market will be constructed on Larangay Street, the same area where a decades-old one is located.
