San Miguel Corporation (SMC) announced that the Alabang southbound exit toll plaza will be closed beginning Feb. 20 to give way to the construction of the Skyway Extension project.

SMC said that motorists can expect heavy traffic in the area as the company fast-tracks the construction of the project, which includes the installation of girders, coping beams, and pre-cast slabs.

“We’re again appealing for patience and understanding from our motorists in the south and residents in the area, for any delays that they may experience, as we work to complete the Skyway Extension. We’ve put in place measures to help mitigate the impact on you and to ensure safety,” SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang said.

“There is no way of getting around this key stage in construction. We really have to do it. It will be a temporary inconvenience, but I promise you, the benefits–eliminating traffic and providing seamless travel–will be well worth it,” he added.

The company said that Class 1 vehicles headed to Alabang or Alabang-Zapote Rd. may take Filinvest Exit Toll Plaza towards their destination. Meanwhile, 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.

The southbound section is expected to be completed by June. 

The Skyway Extension project is a key feature of the 38-kilometer elevated Skyway system.

The Skyway Extension project extends the elevated expressway from Skyway Main Line Toll Plaza in Sucat, Paranaque to Susana Heights at SLEX and back, providing motorists a direct connection to Skyway 1 and 2 and SMC’s recently opened Skyway Stage 3.

It will add three lanes going north and two lanes going south.
