Traffic gridlock imminent as the Federal Government is set to shutdown a portion of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway for reconstruction on Monday.
Motorists commuting the area should begin to plan their route in order to avoid being trapped in traffic.
A portion of the road would have been shut earlier this month, but it was postponed because of the Redeemed Christian Church of God’s convention.
The failed portion of about 600 metres stretching from the Kara Cattle Market end inward Berger Bus Stop would be completed by the second week of December.
Director of Highways, South West Federal Ministry of Works, Mr Funso Adebiyi, said on Thursday that the target was to complete that critical portion of the road before Christmas when more people would be travelling.
According to him, by December 15, the road would be opened substantially for the Yuletide season to avoid traffic jam
