/ 12:25 PM May 21, 2016

The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has advised motorists to take alternate routes as the intersection of Quezon Avenue and Roosevelt Avenue in Quezon City will be closed to traffic starting Saturday, May 21.

In an advisory, MMDA said the closure was to give way to the construction of the Skyway Stage 3 project.

“Left-turning traffic from Roosevelt to Quezon Avenue may take the u-turn slot in front of Maxima,” MMDA said.

“Roosevelt Avenue has become an alternative route for vehicles from the northern side of Araneta Avenue because of the Skyway Stage 3 project. This has resulted in an increase in left-turning traffic (average increase in the number of vehicles at 6,000 daily) and gridlock in the area,” it added.

MMDA said traffic lights in the area will be in flashing mode and the U-turn slot will be opened for affected vehicles going to Edsa while the construction is ongoing.

The Skyway Stage 3 project is an elevated expressway that will run from Buendia in Makati City to Balintawak in Quezon City. The toll-road is expected to cut travel time from more than an hour-and-a-half to about 15 minutes. YG/IDL
