The southbound portion of the EDSA-Kamuning flyover in Quezon City will be partially closed to the public for six months starting May 1, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said on Monday.

In a bid to strengthen the bridge and avoid further damage as preventive measures against natural disasters like earthquakes, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will begin the by-phase retrofitting of the EDSA Kamuning flyover southbound on April 25.

The retrofitting of the Kamuning flyover is a significant step in the government's efforts to rehabilitate structures in preparation for "The Big One” in case it happens.

The flyover is expected to fully open to vehicular traffic on October 25, 2024.

In a press conference, MMDA Acting Chairman Atty. Don Artes advised motorists to avoid the said area as re-decking works will take up one and a half lanes but remain accessible for buses in the Edsa Carousel busway.

"Even though the flyover will be partially closed during the rehabilitation, it will still be passable to public utility buses on the EDSA bus carousel," Artes said.

“Although the southbound lane of the Kamuning flyover will not be entirely closed, we are advising the motorists, especially private vehicles, to use the Mabuhay Lanes as alternate routes to avoid heavy traffic expected due to the re-decking works,” he added.

Private vehicles are advised to take the following alternate routes:
