Enjoying The Sinulog Festivities: Traffic Re-Routing Plan For January 18, 2015 (The Fiesta of Señor Sto. Niño Grand Sinulog Parade and Mardi Gras)

Tatlong tulog na lang!

It would be Sinulog once again!

There will be a lot of dancing and merry-making on Sunday.

I bet majority of the people will have a great time but there’s a catch.

A lot of roads will be closed on that day and traffic will be re-routed.

Yes folks!

This news ain’t new but you still need to be informed.

Plan which route you will take so that you don’t have to walk more than you need to.

From the Cebu City Traffic Operations Management or CITOM, here are the traffic re-routing schemes to be implemented this Sunday.
