Traffic gridlock is imminent as the Federal Government is set to shutdown a portion of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway for reconstruction starting from Monday, September 2nd, 2019.

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.
