Construction of the CM Recto-A. Velez flyover has began with heavy equipment and initial drilling being undertaken at the site.
Two lanes of CM Recto is now closed to traffic with dozens of workers seen onsite. You could see some excavations below perhaps on the piers of the flyover project as well as concrete piles.
Work is on both approaches of the flyover with the area fronting UCCP Church shown below.
The city deactivated the traffic lights in the intersection with RTA personnel manning the traffic. Of course, because of the construction, traffic has become slow in the area but hopefully when this is finished, it will help improve traffic in the area. More photos below.
