In the same press conference, the MMDA chief, together with the DPWH, also announced several road rehabilitation projects throughout Metro Manila, including the renovation of the southbound Edsa-Kamuning Viaduct permanent bridges from April 25.

The project, divided into four phases, would last around 11 months.

DPWH-National Capital Region project inspector Paul Chua noted, however, that the flyover would still be passable during the modernization project.
