Report: southern bridges need reinforcing

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The Department of Public Works submitted its court-ordered monthly report on the progress of road and bridge projects today.  The agency has completed a detailed load rating analysis that will determine what types of trucks can traverse the Pago, Togcha and Talofofo bridges. 

Recommendations have been made to strengthen or replace posting at the Togcha and Talofofo bridges. 

Meanwhile, Phase I of the Ylig Bridge Replacement Project is slated to be completed in next May, with Phase II to be completed in November 2011.  DPW also noted that because the rights of way could not be certified, funding was lost for the Asalonso area that needs roadway and embankment repair and channel bank restoration.
