If you don’t want traffic, try to avoid CM Recto – Limketkai area starting this Friday, November 26, as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is set to resume its Subterranean Drainage Project. Phase 1 covers the section from From Puregold crossing to Limketkai Drive (in front of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf) and from USTP to Bitan-ag Bridge Section.

In its advisory, DPWH stated that a temporary traffic scheme will be implemented to make way for the drainage project. Accordingly, this temporary traffic scheme will comprise 5 Phases.

The construction sequence of DPWH Regional Office X comprises five (5) phases – with five (5) sub-phases for Phase 1 and two (2) sub-phases for Phase 2.

The First Phase (Sub-phases 1A and 1B) of the project implementation involves the construction of a single barrel diversion drainage line that would connect the existing Bitan-ag Channel at Limketkai to the diversion drainage line along BCIR and Agora Terminal Road in Lapasan. This will result to temporary road closure of a portion from the crossing of Puregold towards Limketkai Drive fronting CBTL.

This constructed drainage line will divert water from Bitan-ag Creek in Limketkai Section leading to CM Recto Highway then straight to Valenzuela Road in Agora and exits at the downstream portion of the creek.
