MANILA, Philippines–In anticipation of  a massive crowd as anti-pork barrel protesters gather at Rizal Park on Monday, the Manila District Traffic Enforcement Unit (MDTEU) advised motorists to change their routes as portion of Roxas Boulevard will be closed to traffic.

Starting at 7 a.m. on Monday, the stretch of Roxas Boulevard, both northbound and southbound lane, from Katigbak Drive to T.M. Kalaw road, will be closed, the MDTEU said in an advisory Friday.
