Motorists and commuters should brace themselves for heavier traffic in Makati City as construction activities begin soon for the 880-lineal-meter-long Senator Gil Puyat Avenue/Makati Avenue-Paseo de Roxas vehicle underpass project.

A source at the Department of Public Works and Highways said the target start date for the construction of the underpass is today, June 15.

Public Works Secretary Rogelio Singson said in a statement the other day that they were coordinating with Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and Makati officials for traffic management within the vicinity of the project site.

Costing P1.27 billion, the project involves the construction of a four lane divided vehicle underpass along the innermost lanes of Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue passing through Makati Avenue and Paseo de Roxas intersections, including a covered tunnel portion of about 570 meters. Tina G. Santos
