Guam - If you're traveling along Guam's roadways expect some delays in several villages.

Yigo
Work continues along Route 1 in Yigo. Motorists continue to be advised that traffic heading south on Marine Corps Drive is restricted to one lane of traffic at Wusstig Road.  Motorists should anticipate reduced speeds, increased travel time and short delays while this work is in progress.

Dededo
Next, there's work along Alageta Road, as construction is progressing on Route 25.  Motorists continue to be advised of the detour on the local roads on Kalamasa Street and Ahau Street when traveling from Route 26 to the airport.  Motorists are requested to follow the detour signs, reduce their speeds on the local streets and allow for extra travel time.

Agat
Next there's construction work along Route 2 in Agat. Guardrail crews are removing existing guardrail and installing new guardrail on Route 2 in the village of Agat.  Motorists should anticipate daytime lane closures and short delays while this guardrail work is being done.

Hagatna-Sinajana
Then expect delays along Route 4 from McDonald's to Route 10, as motorists are advised that construction will be ongoing on Route 4 at the Tutujan intersection.  This work will involve the complete reconstruction of the intersection on both sides of the 76 gas station.  Traffic lanes will be reduced in the construction area to one lane for each direction.  Motorists should anticipate increased travel times, congestion and delays until this portion of Route 4 is completed.  Anticipated completion for this section of Route 4 is the end of August.
