Kennon Road open during Holy Week 2019
(UPDATED) Kennon Road will be open to light vehicles from 6 pm of Friday, April 12, to 6 am of Monday, April 22

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Kennon Road will be open to two-way traffic for light vehicles every day during Holy Week, the Cordillera Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and and Management (RDRRMC) Council said on Thursday, April 11. 

In a memorandum, Cordillera RDRRMC chairperson Commodore Albert Mogol said members of the Joint Task Group Kennon agreed during the Thursday meeting to open the road to motorists from 6 pm of Friday, April 12, to 6 am of Monday, April 22. 

Earlier, in March, the regional office of the Department of Public Works and Highways said Kennon Road would only be open from 6 pm on Fridays until 6 am on Mondays until Holy Week, and only starting on Palm Sunday, April 14.

Only light vehicles weighing 5 tons and below will be allowed to pass through.

Kennon Road had been closed to traffic since June 2018, after a series of landslides hit Northern Luzon, but was opened from time to time, in consideration of major events in Baguio attended by non-residents. These events include the Philippine Military Academy homecoming, and the grand parades of the Panagbenga Flower Festival. – with a report from Mau Victa/Rappler.com
