Traffic work this week in Piti, Yigo, Dededo

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Congestion is expected to occur on the roadways, as more construction work is being done around the island. You may want to stay clear of some areas.  Island motorists can expect some traffic as they make your way through Guam's roads this week.

Construction work continues to protect existing seawalls and roadways on Route 11 in Piti.  Motorists traveling to the Port of Guam should be aware that construction equipment will be moving along the shoulder of the road. You're asked to reduce speeds through those roads, but no traffic delays are anticipated.

As for work in Tumon along San Vitores Road from Marine Corps Drive to the Westin, traffic heading uphill and downhill at the intersection are limited to single lanes in each direction. Anticipate delays due to reduced lanes. Find alternate routes to reduce congestion and delays.

As for Marine Corps Drive itself, work continues on Route 1 for the new traffic signals at Wusstig Road and Chalan Lujuna up in Yigo. Contractors will be installing underground electrical and traffic signal wiring. Work takes place off the shoulder of the road and no impacts to traffic are anticipated.

In the meantime, in Dededo near the Micronesia Mall, you would be wise to anticipate daytime lane closures and short delays during weekdays and weekends. The new traffic signal is now operating near Iglesia Circle at the Dededo Skate Park, which will reduce traffic entering the area around Santa Barbara Church and provide a safer route for pedestrians.

As for Route 4 from the Hagatna McDonald's to Route 10, work continues to repair existing pavement damage on Route 4 from McDonald's to Route 15 (Maimai Road). Anticipate reduced lanes, reduced speeds and short delays. Lastly, work continues on Route 16 (the intersection at the Guam Main Facility post office in Barrigada), construction work continues.

Motorists are encouraged to be aware of and observe the construction signs and reduced speeds in the construction area.
