Guam - Residents expect more traffic this week as the Guam Transportation Program has released a list of projects on Guam's roadways.  If you're traveling on the island's road to get to and from work, you may want to see whether your usual route is affected by road construction. 

According to the Weekly Traffic Alert from the Guam Transportation Program, work will continue along Marine Corps Drive (Route 1). Crews will be working at the signalized intersection between Hagatna and the Micronesia Mall. You can expect daytime lane closures and short delays. The contractor has placed foundations to the new traffic signal poles at the intersections of Wusstig Road and Chalan Luguna.

As far as work ongoing along Route 4 in Yona to Route 10, guardrail crews will be installing new guardrails at various locations on Route 4 from Yona to the Route 10 intersection. Motorists are requested to look out for construction equipment and workers on the roadway.

Next we have construction along Route 4 from McDonalds to Route 10. Crews will be placing concrete pavements and working on concrete curbs in the center of the roadway. The contractor will also place asphalt pavement on route ten and 15. Expect lane closures, reduced speeds and short delays.

Then there's Route 10 to Mangilao. Guardrail crews will be installing guardrails in these areas. As for Route 16, which is the Guam Main Facility post office intersection in Barrigada, roadway excavation for the widening of the intersection, construction equipment will be entering Route 16 from the construction area.

And finally, if you're traveling through routes 15, 4 and 10, guardrail crews will be installing new guardrails in the area. Traffic should not be affected.
