Lawton Avenue, also known as Fort Bonifacio-Nichols Field Road, is the main road in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines.

It follows a part of the alignment of the old Nichols route running roughly southwest to northeast from Sales Interchange to 5th Avenue and the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial. It was named after Henry Ware Lawton, US Army general during the Philippine–American War.

ROUTE

Starting at its western terminus on Sales Bridge at the Sales Interchange near the border of Pasay and Taguig, the avenue heads east to the intersection with Chino Roces Avenue near the entrance to the Fort Andres Bonifacio at Gate 3. It continues across army property winding past the Philippine Naval Hospital and Kagitingan Executive Golf Course, and intersecting with Bayani Road.

At Upper McKinley Road, Lawton traverses the McKinley Hill mixed-use development and the Philippine Army Headquarters, bending sharply north as it skirts the western side of Manila American Cemetery. The avenue ends at a fork in the road with 5th Avenue to the west, which leads to Bonifacio Global City, and Old Lawton Road to the east, which leads to the American Cemetery entrance.

The extension of 8th Avenue north of Kalayaan Avenue between Bonifacio Global City and J.P. Rizal Avenue in Makati is also named Lawton Avenue. West of the Nichols interchange, Lawton continues as Sales Road and Andrews Avenue heading towards Pasay, the Villamor Air Base, and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

ROAD EXPANSION

As part of the Duterte administration's Build! Build! Build! Infrastructure Program, the avenue was expanded from four lanes (two lanes per direction) to six lanes (three lanes per direction). The project spans 3.1 kilometers (1.9 mi) and is divided in two phases. The road widening project complemented with the construction of the Santa Monica-Lawton Bridge and the expected influx of vehicles once the Santa Monica-Lawton bridge is opened.


When completed, the travel time between Bonifacio Global City and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport will be reduced by about 40% and the road will accommodate more vehicles. Construction began on August 21, 2017 and the first phase spanning 1.34 kilometers (0.83 mi) was opened on November 17, 2020.

The road widening project is expected to be fully completed in September 2021.
