An eastbound lane of the Vargas Bridge in Pasig City was closed to motorists for “retrofitting works”, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In an advisory on Thursday, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said the lane’s closure will take effect at 6 a.m. on November 21 with no date yet on its reopening.

The closure, it said, would allow a private contractor of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to strengthen the girder support of the 140-meter-long bridge in Barangay Bagong Ilog to avoid further deterioration and for the safety of motorists passing through it.


“The bridge repair aims to strengthen the 36-year-old structure, which showed damaged/dropped portion at the expansion joint, as discussed during a coordination meeting today (Thursday) among officials of MMDA, DPWH, and the local government of Pasig City,” the MMDA said.

For motorists headed westbound from C. Raymundo Avenue in Pasig City, it advised a detour by turning left at Dr. Sixto Avenue, another left at P. Conducto Street to CP Garcia Avenue (C5) to destination.

Another westbound detour from C. Raymundo Avenue, motorists are advised to turn left at A. Mabini Street/A. Luna Street, another left at P. Burgos, left at Industria, right at Sta. Rosa de Lima Bridge, then right at Avis Street at Dr. Maximo Flores to C5/Shaw Boulevard to destination.

For motorists headed eastbound from Shaw Boulevard/CP Garcia Avenue, it advised a detour by turning right at Eagle Avenue, and right at Dr. Sixto Antonio Avenue to destination.

Other motorists may also take a different eastbound detour from Shaw Boulevard/CP Garcia Avenue by turning right at Dr. Maximo Flores, right at Avis Street, left at Sta. Rosa de Lima Bridge, straight to Dr. Garcia Street, and left at A. Luna Street to destination.

“Eastbound vehicles can also take Eagle Street from C5 to Dr. Sixto Antonio to their destination. Affected vehicles may also take the Kaginhawaan Bridge,” the MMDA said.

It noted that all trucks would be diverted to Ortigas Avenue for the duration of the repair works on Vargas Bridge.
