Kennon Road Implements Window Hours for Temporary Closure at Camp 6 Tuba Benguet

In an effort to accommodate the pressing need for repairs while minimizing disruption to daily commutes, Kennon Road will see the introduction of window hours during its temporary closure starting February 19, 2024. This decision comes following the guidance of the Metropolitan Baguio-La Trinidad-Itogon-Sablan-Tuba-Tublay (MBLISTT) Council Chairperson and Baguio City Mayor, Benjamin B. Magalong, aiming to balance infrastructure development with the community’s mobility needs.

Window Hours for Non-Residents: A Closer Look

To facilitate orderly traffic flow and ensure that non-residents can plan their travel accordingly, specific window hours have been set. Non-residents will be allowed to travel down from Baguio City from Sunday at 12:01 AM to Wednesday at 12:00 MN. Conversely, the window for going up to Baguio is scheduled from Thursday at 12:01 AM to Saturday at 12:00 MN. These measures are expected to significantly reduce congestion and provide clear guidance to motorists navigating the area.

Diversion and Alternate Routes

Given the temporary closure, motorists are advised to take the temporary diversion road along the Bued River upon reaching the project site at Camp 6. Additionally, on days when Kennon Road is impassable, alternative routes have been recommended, including Marcos Highway and the Asin-Nangalisan-San Pascual-La Union Boundary Road. These alternatives are intended to ease the inconvenience caused by the closure and ensure that travelers can reach their destinations without undue delay.

Exemptions and Special Instructions

Acknowledging the needs of local residents and emergency-purpose travelers, exemptions have been made to allow these individuals to pass both ways (going up and down Kennon Road) even during the closure. However, it is mandatory for them to utilize the temporary diversion road upon reaching Camp 6. This measure ensures that essential travel and emergency responses are not hindered by the ongoing construction works.
