Overdue roadwork causes frustration

Posted: Updated:

The Department of Public Works is asking for the public's patience as they continue to make long-overdue upgrades to the island's roadways.  DPW director Larry Perez says the current $80 million in ongoing road construction projects are on track.  

Perez added that work on Route 4 from the Agana McDonald's heading towards the Route 4 and Route 10 intersections in Chalan Pago are expected to begin later this month.  "We apologize for the inconvenience," said Perez, "We ask you to 'pardon our progress', as is our motto. It's a slight inconvenience for an improvement that will improve the quality of life and quality of driving in our roadways making it safer and just basically more pleasant."

Perez says the Route 4 upgrades will cost some $15 million.
