The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is working on the completion of a widening project to help decongest Commonwealth Avenue – one of the busiest thoroughfares in Metro Manila.
DPWH-National Capital Region Director Melvin B. Navarro said three (3) additional lanes along Commonwealth Avenue are being constructed, specifically at a 350 lineal meter portion from Zuzurueggi Street to Vila Beatriz Street where some informal settler families reside.
The project costing P41 million also involves construction of sidewalk for the safety of pedestrians. The project is now 90 percent completed.
“We want to fully-utilize our road space so we are closely coordinating with other government agencies and private entities for the soonest possible relocation of informal settler families and utilities in the project area,” said Navarro.
Informal settler families occupying the road right of way will be relocated to government relocation site in Bulacan.
