SMC to close part of Skyway


    San Miguel Corp. (SMC) is set to close southbound section of Skyway this weekend to expedite works on the extension project which targets to complete this year.

    SMC announced the road closure of the Alabang southbound exit toll plaza, beside the Alabang viaduct to usher construction works at the southbound section starting midnight on February 20.

    Skyway management said as work on the southbound section is about to enter the advanced phase, motorists are advised to take alternative routes.

    The alternative routes are as follows: class 1 headed to Alabang or Alabang-Zapote Rd. may take Filinvest Exit Toll Plaza towards their destination.

    Class 1, 2 and 3 vehicles bound for Alabang, Putatan, and National Road may take the Susana Exit Toll Plaza, turn right at Susana Heights Ave., and turn either left or right on the National Road to their respective destinations.

    Motorists can also expect heavy traffic in the area because of the construction work, which will include the installation of girders, coping beams, and pre-cast slabs.
