Paranaque announces road closures for LRT-1 extension work.

The Imelda Bridge will be partially closed on Monday due to construction on the Light Rail Transit-1 (LRT-1) Cavite Extension Project, according to a statement from the government of Paranaque City.

The closure will occur from 10 p.m. on September 20 to 5 a.m. on September 21 and from 10 p.m. on September 27 to 5 a.m. on September 28, according to the city’s Traffic and Parking Management Office’s advice.

On the viaduct, tracks and an overhead catenary system will be installed during the impacted dates, necessitating the casting of concrete pedestals and piths.

LRT-1 will be extended by 11.8 kilometers to Cavite from the line’s southernmost existing stop in Baclaran, Paranaque, and the number of stations will increase from 20 to 28 due to the project.

Built during the administration of President Ferdinand E. Marcos Sr., LRT-1 was the region’s first rapid transit system to open for business in 1984.

An estimated 800,000 passengers per day, including commuters near Ninoy Aquino International Airport, are anticipated to be served by the extension.

Previously, the LRT-1 was extended from Monumento in Caloocan City to the Roosevelt and Balintawak stations in Quezon City.

A shared station is being considered to connect the LRT-1 to the Metro Rail Transit Lines 3 and 7.
