MANILA, Philippines — There will be several road repairs on some portions of Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (Edsa) and the C-5 Road from Friday night, July 2, to Monday morning, July 5, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced.
According to DPHW – National Capital Region (NCR) Director Eric Ayapana, the road rehabilitation works will be on Edsa’s southbound lane, starting from Biglang Awa Street in Caloocan City.
The second lane from the sidewalk will be affected, DPWH said.
“[…] The road rehabilitation works will be carried out from 11 p.m., Friday, July 2, 2021 until 5 a.m., Monday, July 5, 2021 along a section of EDSA, covering the southbound direction from after Biglang Awa Street, 2nd lane from sidewalk in Caloocan City,” the department said.

The reblocking at the Rosa Alvero Street will cover the second lane from the side walk, and the third lane from the sidewalk for the section near Rajah Matanda Street.
DPWH said that they have already secured clearance and coordinated with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
