Kamuning Flyover to Close for 11 Months

Attention, drivers! Get ready for some changes as the EDSA-Kamuning Flyover gears up for rehabilitation, commencing on Thursday, April 25, and anticipated to last for 11 months.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has outlined a comprehensive plan, divided into four phases, each spanning approximately 12 weeks. During these phases, specific sections of 1.5 lanes will be closed off at a time to facilitate the necessary upgrades.

The retrofitting of the Kamuning Flyover aligns with the DPWH's commitment to fortify structures in anticipation of potential seismic events, particularly "The Big One," a major earthquake projected to occur along the 100-kilometer fault line traversing the Greater Manila Area..


Road retrofitting entails enhancing existing infrastructure to bolster safety, capacity, and resilience against environmental factors. "The re-decking of the flyover cannot be deferred. We assure the public that we will manage the traffic in such a way that the impact of the repair is minimal to the motorists," emphasized Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Acting Chairman Atty. Don Artes during a press briefing on April 4.

DPWH-NCR Project Inspector Paul Chua clarified that the repair activities will not monopolize the entire roadway, ensuring that the EDSA Bus Carousel Lane remains unaffected by the project.

To mitigate disruptions, motorists can utilize Mabuhay lanes as alternate routes. Artes affirmed the MMDA's commitment to intensify clearing operations before the commencement of repair works, stating, "This is to make sure that roads serving as alternate routes are clear and obstruction-free to minimize the effects of the repairs on traffic."

Moreover, beyond the EDSA-Kamuning Flyover, the MMDA announced during the same press briefing on April 4 that the DPWH will undertake road reblocking and repairs along 14 major thoroughfares in the National Capital Region (NCR) from 11 p.m. on April 5 until the following week.

Among the areas to be affected by the road works are the following:
  • Tandang Sora Avenue Quezon City (from Commonwealth Avenue going C-5)
  • Bonny Serrano Avenue Quezon City (corners of 15th Ave. and 20th Ave.)
  • EDSA Northbound Mandaluyong (Apo Street to Pioneer St., outermost lane; beside sidewalk)
  • EDSA Southbound Mandaluyong (after Gate 4 to EDSA Shrine)
  • Roxas Boulevard Northbound Pasay (between Lourdes St. & Vicente Sotto St.)
  • Roxas Boulevard Northbound Manila (between Remedios St. & Pasaje del Carmen St.)
  • Roxas Boulevard EDSA Flyover Southbound Pasay (bridge approach, outer & inner lane)
  • IBP – San Mateo Road Quezon City (fronting Robinson Easymart to Jollibee, 1st lane from center)
  • Luzon Avenue Southbound Quezon City (Congressional Ave. Extension to before Luzon Flyover, 1st lane from center)
  • Mindanao Avenue Northbound Quezon City (Uno Fuel to Chinabank, truck lane)
  • Payatas Road Quezon City bound to Batasan Road (before Maynilad Pumping Station to G3 Center, outer lane)
  • Payatas Road Quezon City bound to Batasan Road (Batasan Rd. to Bayanihan St. / Samar St. to Leyte St., outer lane)
  • Araneta Avenue Quezon City (Wayan St. to Mauban St., 1st lane from sidewalk)
  • Payatas Road Quezon City (Singko St. to Samar St., inner lane)

"We will only allow DPWH to conduct 24-hour road repairs, which they commit to finish on time and implement properly in the same manner as they implemented it during last Holy Week’s road repairs," assured Artes, emphasizing the importance of efficient and timely completion of repair works to minimize inconvenience to the public.
