After two postponements, the rehabilitation of a portion of Marcos Bridge in Marikina will finally proceed on Saturday, May 25, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority announced Thursday.

MMDA general manager Jose Arturo “Jojo” Garcia said the eastbound portion of Marcos Bridge on Marcos Highway would be closed starting 11 p.m.

“After two weeks of preparations, it is definite now. Marcos Bridge will be closed for the next four months to give way to its long-overdue rehabilitation,” Garcia said.

Light vehicles going to Antipolo may take the westbound direction while light vehicles going Cubao may use the service road in front of SM Marikina mall.

Rehabilitation works on the bridge was originally set to start on May 4 but was postponed after several ocular inspections showed that the contractor was not fully prepared to proceed with the project.

“Private contractors are now ready to push through with the rehabilitation after complying with the necessary requirements they need to address,” Garcia said.

The bridge, built in 1979, at the boundary of Marikina and Pasig cities, has an average daily traffic of 6,400 vehicles per hour in both directions.

Road traffic advisories were also installed around the site of the project.

Motorists and truckers are advised to take the following alternative routes:

Cubao to Antipolo Route:

  1. From Cubao, take Aurora Blvd. then right turn to Katipunan Ave., take service road of Libis underpass, left turn to Boni Serrano and take FVR Road straight to Macapagal Bridge then Marcos Highway to Antipolo.
