Traffic is expected to be heavy on the stretch of EDSA near Muñoz, Quezon City, beginning March 15, when the repair of the Dario Bridge starts.
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Francis Tolentino has told the contractors to manage the alternative routes around Munoz and install traffic signs.
Tolentino also required the contractor’s flagmen to take traffic management lessons at the MMDA office lessons.
Work on the 26-meter-long Dario Bridge is expected to take nine to 12 months.
Residents in Quezon City and Caloocan City may be affected by the project.
