Perhaps as a measure against flooding of Limketkai Avenue, the management of Limketkai Complex has started elevating the road approaching the junction at CM Recto Avenue.
As shown, the slight elevation of the approach begins some 20 meters from CM Recto Avenue. They are now earth filling the site some three (3) feet high from the original level.
One lane of Limketkai Avenue’s northbound side is closed to traffic as shown.
Flooding along this road is caused by overflowing from Bitan-ag Creek which floods CM Recto and then enters Limketkai Avenue. I think the elevation will somehow prevent flood waters from CM Recto from entering Limketkai Avenue. I think after this one, they will elevate the other lanes as well. I don’t really know but it’s my assumption.
