Spanish Bridge repairs could start soon

Posted: Updated:

The Guam Preservation Trust is hoping to start the repair and renovations of the Taleyfac Spanish Bridge in Agat. According to Chief Program Officer Joe Quinata, they've completed the bid phase and the intent to award has been given to a company.

Quinata says the company will soon proceed with the project in the next month or so if weather permits.  He told KUAM News, "We're hoping the project would start, you'll start seeing activity late part of this year or early part next year and that's to accommodate again to go inline with the season where at this point it's not wise to work on the bridge because it's rainy season."

The Spanish Bridge suffered damage due to natural disasters. It happens to be one of the few original examples of Spanish architecture that still exists in its original location.
