Time short to start work on Tiyan parkway

Guam - The clock is ticking for the Government of Guam to begin work on the Laderan Tiyan Parkway that will provide access from Airport Road to Route 8.  Department of Public Works Acting Director Andy Leon Guerrero says the agency hasn't been able to reach a compromise on what land will be utilized for the parkway, which must be completed within two years.

DPW is now trying to facilitate a meeting with Federal Highway Administration officials and the Federal Aviation Administration to reach a compromise.  The FAA is adamant about not using Guam International Airport Authority property for the parkway, but that would leave private land that was recently given back to original landowners as the only other land to utilize for the access road.

"It has to be in the very near future because that project needs to completed by 2012," said Leon Guerrero, "so we need to work on that as soon as possible and get it resolved."  He also said the government is trying to avoid taking back original landowners' property for the construction of the parkway that is expected to run along the cliffline of Tiyan.
