The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) began major rehabilitation of portions of the northbound direction of Roxas Boulevard on February 28.

DPWH South Manila district engineer Mikunug D. Macud said they have secured clearance from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority for a 180-calendar-day schedule within which to conduct road reblocking and repair works along a kilometer-long intermittent portion of the four northbound lanes of Roxas Boulevard.

“Tonight, we will begin repair along portions of the outermost northbound lanes of Roxas Boulevard, starting at the 50 meters from EDSA in Pasay side, and another 50 meters from P. Ocampo Street in Manila side,” Macud said in a statement.

“Roxas Boulevard is a 5.45-kilometer national road that serves as a major route of heavy vehicles daily particularly trucks going in and out of Manila Ports. That’s why its foundation deteriorates faster than regular roads, hence the need for rehabilitation,” Macud added.

The rehabilitation has received an initial allocation of P20 million to cover the 530-meter portion from EDSA to before Libertad and another P40 million for the 500-meter section from Ocampo Street to before Quirino Avenue. The repairs entail excavation of old road parts and road concreting, with drainage improvement and traffic management component.

Macud said that once the initial portions are completely repaired, the remaining sections of the northbound lanes as well as the entire four-lane southbound direction will also undergo the same works.
