Portion of Roxas Boulevard Closed for ‘Jesus Is Lord’ Anniversary on Saturday
A portion of Roxas Boulevard in Manila City will be closed to vehicular traffic on Saturday, October 27, to give way to the 40th anniversary of the Jesus Is Lord (JIL) Church at the Luneta, Rizal Park.
Three lanes from Kalaw to P. Burgos (southbound) will be off-limits to vehicles at 12:01 AM for some technical preparations.
Remaining lanes on the said portion will be totally closed from 10 AM up to 12 midnight for activities lined up for the event. Orange barriers and cones will be placed on affected area to guide motorists.
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) General Manager Jojo Garcia said the event will utilize the Quirino Grandstand and is expected to draw 100,000 participants.
“We advise the public to stay away from the area if you have no important business there,” Garcia told the public.
Traffic enforcers will also be working hand in hand with the Manila local government in managing traffic and ensuring the safety of the participants.
One lane on streets of Kalaw, Bonifacio Drive, and P. Burgos will serve also as drop off points of buses carrying the participants.
Designated parking areas are in Intramuros, Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), and the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).
