MANILA, Philippines— Quiapo officials on Thursday announced that it would follow a different route for the annual procession of the Black Nazarene on its feast day, January 9, Thursday, amid ongoing bridge repairs.

This year, the image of the Black Nazarene would still begin at Quirino Grandstand but would take the Ayala Bridge route.

The procession, commonly referred to as “traslacion,” usually passes through Jones Bridge in Manila.

However, the Jones, Quezon and MacArthur bridges are currently undergoing retrofitting.
