The Cebu City Trans­porta­tion Of­fice (CCTO) has re­minded the pub­lic that there will be road clo­sures and rerout­ing to­day and to­mor­row for the Sin­u­log sa Lalaw­igan and Sin­u­log sa Barangay, re­spec­tively.

For to­day, the seven con­tin­gents of the Sin­u­log sa Lalaw­igan sa Sugbo will con­verge at the Pro­vin­cial Capi­tol. With this, the CCTO will close the Os­meña Boule­vard at 12 noon un­til the pa­rade is com­pleted.

“Awhag lang nato ang tanang mo­torista nga mo­sunod sa rerout­ing para dili magya­gaw. Man­gayo pod ta og pasen­sya sa mga maapek­ta­han,” said CCTO Chief Fran­cisco Ouano.

The af­fected jeep­ney routes are those ply­ing Mabolo, Lahug, Apas, Capi­tol Site, Guadalupe, Banawa, La­ban­gon, among oth­ers.

CCTO ad­vised road users to fol­low in­stalled traf­fic signs to min­i­mize traf­fic con­ges­tion.

For to­mor­row's Sin­u­log sa Barangay, there will be 20 par­tic­i­pat­ing con­tin­gents.

They will con­verge near Plaza In­de­pen­den­cia.

The pa­rade will start along Os­meña Boule­vard from Le­gaspi Ex­ten­sion to Plar­idel Ex­ten­sion to Os­meña Boule­vard to Cebu City Sports Cen­ter. The road clo­sure will start at 10 a.m. un­til the ac­tiv­ity is fin­ished.

Af­fected jeep­ney routes are those ply­ing Mabolo, Lahug, Apas, Capi­tol Site, Banawa, Guadalupe, La­ban­gon, among oth­ers.

Sin­u­log Foun­da­tion Inc. Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Ricky Ballesteros said he is ex­cited to wit­ness this year's Sin­u­log sa Lalaw­igan and the Sin­u­log sa Barangay.

“We only have seven con­tin­gents for the Sin­u­log sa Lalaw­igan sa Sugbo this year. But nakakita ko sa ilang prac­tices and these are qual­ity con­tin­gents,” he said.

As for the Sin­u­log sa Barangay, Ballesteros said this is the sec­ond year that the city is show­cas­ing the feasts of the re­spec­tive barangays in the city.

He said there are 20 par­tic­i­pat­ing barangays for this year's com­pe­ti­tion.

Ballesteros said these barangays have qual­ity presentations too com­pared to last year's con­test.

“Dili gyod kabin­ta­haan ang 20 ka mga con­tin­gents sa barangay. I saw some of their prac­tices pod. Dili pa gani com­plete og props and cos­tumes, nin­dot na,” he said.

Ballesteros said he is hop­ing the weather will be fine to­day and to­mor­row for the two ac­tiv­i­ties.

While Coun­cilor David Tu­mu­lak, deputy mayor for po­lice mat­ters, said there are al­ready de­ployed po­lice­men to se­cure the up­com­ing events of the Sin­u­log.
