A. Bonifacio Avenue in Marikina

The main road leading to Marikina City from Quezon City is one that branches from Aurora Boulevard. A. Bonifacio Avenue is one of two roads diverging from Aurora, the other one being Marcos Highway. The avenue eventually becomes Sumulong Highway at its junction with Angel Tuazon Ave. (Gil Fernando Ave.) at the Blue Wave mall.

A. Bonifacio Ave. is the main access road to Loyola Memorial Park and so it gets quite congested during the Undas period (All Saints and All Souls Days). The road and adjacent land is flood prone and along the road is the main gate to Provident Village, which was one of the most devastated private subdivisions during Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) in 2009 and the heavy rains of Habagat (southwest monsoon) in 2012.
