The Metropolitan Development Authority has announced the closure of the westbound portion of Marcos Bridge in Marikina.

According to MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia, the westbound portion of the bridge will be closed on Monday, August 26 at exactly 12 noon for repair and rehabilitation.

Meanwhile, the eastbound part of the bridge which was closed last May, is now open to vehicular traffic.

“After less than three months of repair, motorists going to Antipolo can now utilize the eastbound portion of the bridge,” he said.

Garcia also said that zipper lane will be implemented on the eastbound side for those going out of Marikina due to larger volume of vehicles especially during rush hours.

The closure will last for four months.
