DPWH constructed two additional lanes along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City.
Motorists as well as pedestrians taking Commonwealth Avenue will benefit from the opening of newly-constructed two additional lanes on the southbound direction of Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City.
The southbound segment of Commonwealth Avenue will be opened between Zuzuarregui Street to Vila Beatriz Street, according to Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar.

The project, which costs an estimated Php 50 million in total, covers flood-control, pedestrian-friendly components such as a 910-milimeter diameter reinforced concrete pipe culvert (RCPC), and construction of concrete curb and gutter, and a 2.5-meter wide sidewalk.
The section of Commonwealth Avenue has been widened from five to seven lanes to decongest traffic in the area. “We have settled right-of-way claims of informal settler families (ISF) so we were able to push through with opening of 2 additional lanes along Commonwealth. Another one lane will be added once the utility posts are relocated,” the Secretary shared.
