According to MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia, the said closure will finally push through after several postponements.

The supposed schedule of the Marcos Bridge closure was set on May 4. However, it was postponed because the contractor was not fully prepared to proceed with the project based on the several ocular inspections.

“After two weeks of preparations, it is definite now. Marcos Bridge will be closed for the next four months to give way to its long-overdue rehabilitation,” said Garcia, in a news briefing on Thursday (May 24).
