NLEX to close wide vehicle exit lane in Bocaue interchange

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — The fourth exit lane of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) used by heavy trucks will be temporarily closed from July 2 to 15, 2018 due to the regular repaving works at the Bocaue interchange southbound exit.

This was announced by the NLEX Corporation as it noted that the temporary exit lane closure will allow the repaving works to be fast tracked and completed and ensure that the trucking sector customers will continue to enjoy the high standard of service.

With this development, traffic inconvenience in that strategic NLEX junction in Bulacan is expected.

Truckers and other commercial vehicles that use the southbound truck (wide vehicle) exit lane are advised to find alternate routes since the other exit lanes cannot accommodate wide vehicles.

All the other Bocaue southbound exit lanes will remain open.

Meanwhile, to minimize inconvenience to the motorists along the Bocaue Interchange, the NLEX in its advisory, said the night time asphalting and deep patching works will continue to be implemented from 10 p.m to 4 a.m. in the entry and exit ramps (both northbound and southbound) on the following dates: northbound exit (June 25 to July 1); northbound entry (July 2 to 8);  southbound entry (July 2 to 15); southbound exit ramp (July 16 to 26).

The NLEX Corporation, however, assured motorists that efforts will be done to minimize traffic disruption and complete the works ahead of schedule.

For the entire repair duration, the NLEX Corporation said that traffic personnel to manage the flow of vehicles will be assigned.

Road signs and other warning devices will be also installed to guide motorists.
