DPWH eyes partial opening of Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge this June

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is aiming to partially open the Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge next month.

According to Public Works and Highways Sec. Mark Villar, the access ramps of the Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge, a major component of the Bonifacio Global City – Ortigas Center Road Link Project, are already completed.

“With the completion of both up-ramp and down-ramp near Kalayaan Avenue, we will be able to achieved the target partial opening by June 12  of the four-lane two-way Sta. Monica-Lawton Bridge,” Villar said.

Meanwhile, Undersecretary Emil Sadain said that once the punch listing activities are done, the asphalt overlay of the bridge deck surface as well as the up and down ramps, and abutment 1 will commence by the last week of May.

“The asphalt concrete overlays will protect the bridge and road pavement from water permeation, flexural fatigue, rutting and shoving,” Sadain said.

The BGC-Ortigas Center Road Link Project is targeted for full completion by September.  

“The cantilever box girder bridge is already fully completed with sidewalk, parapet, double arms street light and drainage pipe, with some activities for the median barrier,” the DPWH said.

“Improvement thru widening of the connecting roads from the start of the project to Pier 5 at Pasig City side particularly the 228 meters Brixton Street and 248 meters Fairlane Street were also undertaken, while finishing touches is on-going at the 159 meters abutment 1 particularly on its drainage and manholes, median, sidewalk and parapet,” it added.
