The rehabilitation of the old Mactan-Mandaue Bridge was completed during the first week of August. Thus, the bridge can already accommodate two-way vehicular traffic. Further, the repair of the water pipeline under the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge has also been completed this week. These developments are expected to lessen traffic woes for people traveling on the bridge, especially those going to and from Mandaue City to Mactan Cebu International Airport.


Rainy weather expected for the week

People in Cebu should get their rain gear out since cloud cover will dominate the skyline of the Queen City of the South. Thunderstorms are also expected to happen in the afternoon as the city starts to feel the brunt of the rainy season. The sun may get a chance to peek out on Tuesday morning, but the afternoon may see rain coming down on the city. Due to this, the public can expect heavy traffic in major thoroughfares due to flooding in some parts of the city.
