Teachers’ Camp has reopened its interior road connecting Leonard Wood Road and South Drive Road to private vehicles until Jan. 13, 2024 from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.

This was upon the approval by Vice President and Education Sec. Sara Duterte of Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s request to open said inner street as an alternative passage route to ease traffic woes in the area especially during the holiday season.

The approval was subject to conditions that the scheme be implemented with close monitoring by policemen to ensure the safety and security of the premises, the motorists and pedestrians entering the area.

This is the third time the DepEd secretary acceded to the city government’s request for the alternate route opening.

Duterte approved the city’s appeal around the same time last year to address the holiday rush and again last May for the summer vacation activities.

Baguio City Police Office Traffic Enforcement Unit Chief, Maj. Zacarias Dausen said opening the inner road helps unclog bottlenecks in the area such as Ilusorio Drive and Pacdal Rotunda. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
