Upgraded traffic systems at Dededo skate park

Guam - Motorists will notice major changes as they travel in the north as the Department of Public Works has completed multiple traffic enhancement projects.  The $1.5 million project included an islandwide LED signal upgrade, traffic signal timing, GPS-based clocks and a signal system for Marine Corps Drive and Iglesia Circle in Dededo.

Kinden Corporation Business Manager Bernice Hunt told KUAM News, "It was a challenge coordinating with safety, coordinating with DPW and having Parsons assist us in coordinating the road closures, the installation of the signals, which expand out over the highway and then putting the signal lights on those."

The safety measures were prompted by the death of a young girl who was using the skate park and was struck and killed by a car when she crossed the road.
