Osmeña Highway Bridge 2 undergoes repair, South Superhighway partially closed


Southbound lane of South Superhighway from President Quirino Avenue to San Andres Street is partially closed to traffic due to ongoing repair of Osmeña Highway Bridge 2 (southbound).
Repair and reconstruction of the Osmeña Highway Bridge 2 located at Paco, Manila is part of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) program of strengthening bridges along national road.
Following the instruction of Secretary Rogelio L. Singson and in coordination with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), DPWH-National Capital Region has shortened the earlier announced 45 days duration of repair project to 30 days with works commencing on March 9, 2012 and scheduled for completion by April 10, 2012.
Due to expected traffic slowdown at the project area, southbound vehicles from Quirino Avenue are advised to turn left to Taft Avenue, Leon Guinto or Roxas Boulevard to destination.
With the partial closure to vehicular traffic of the southbound bridge, two-way traffic is in effect at the northbound lane of South Superhighway with the northbound motorists from South Superhighway (Osmeña) being advised to consider turning left to either EDSA or Buendia to destination.
To avoid heavy traffic, motorists from South Superhighway may also turn right to Zobel Roxas Avenue and turn left at Onyx to destination or to turn right at San Andres turn and left to Onyx to destination.
Substantial number of DPWH traffic personnel augmented by MMDA enforcers are deployed at the project vicinity and alternative routes to guide motorists.
