Starting Dec. 4, private cars will be banned from passing through N. Bacalso Avenue. The Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) will enforce the ban during peak hours, which run from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM and from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña implemented the ban to ease the burden on commuters while the underpass project is being constructed. Private vehicles will have to take alternate routes. These include Macopa Street and Cabreros Street for north-bound motorists, and Maria Gochan Street, Sabellano Street, and Tagunol Street for south-bound motorists.
