Cordillera - Tourists who are planning to visit Baguio on the weekends can now pass the historic Kennon Road after the Cordillera Regional Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (CRDRRMC) has announced its opening to motorist.

The opening of the road will start from 6 pm on Friday (Nov. 22) until 6 pm on Monday (Nov. 25).

The temporary opening of the road on the weekend will help reduce the traffic congestion along Marcos Highway and the Tuba-Nangalisan Road.

Take note though that only light vehicles weighing 5 tons and below will be allowed to pass through on the right side upward direction lane.

Motorist is also advised to strictly observe the 22 kilometers per hour speed limit as well as other traffic and parking rules.

Those who want to visit to the Lion's Head will need to get clearance from the police station at the view deck in Camp 7, this is according to the advisory issued on Friday.

It can be recalled that Kennon road was closed to traffic after geologists and experts from DPWH had found out the risks of accident it can caused to motorists during bad weather.

Officials and representatives of the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), and concerned local government units vowed to ensure the safety of motorist who would be using the road going to Baguio.
