Guam - Road construction continues at various parts throughout the island this week, so the Department of Public Works advises Guam drivers to be mindful of several sites as you make your way to and from home, work, school and doing errands. 

San Vitores (Marine Corps Drive to the Westin)
Motorists traveling downhill toward the Westin from Marine Corps Drive are advised that the right turn lane has been moved to the new concrete pavement at the Westin intersection.  Construction work also continues for the drainage inlets near the DFS.  Motorists should anticipate daytime lane closures and short delays in this section of roadway.

Route 4 from McDonald's to Route 10
Beginning May 1, nighttime paving operations will begin on Route 4 between Route 10 and Route 15 (Maimai Road).  Motorists are advised that heavy construction equipment will be on the roadway.  Motorists should also anticipate lane closures and delays between 6pm and 6am.  Work will continue at other locations on Route 4 during the daytime.  Motorists should anticipate lane closures, reduced speeds and short delays.

Route 16 (Barrigada Post Office Intersection)
The contractor continues to work on the shoulder of the Army National Guard side of the roadway.  Motorists are requested to observe the reduced speed limit in the construction area.  Motorists are also advised that heavy construction equipment may be entering and exiting the construction area from Route 16.

Route 8-10-16 Intersection
The contractor is now planning to begin construction work on Route 8A next to the Happy Mart.  Motorists should anticipate narrower lanes and short delays as the detour for this work is constructed.

Route 2 (Agat)
The guardrail contractor will be working on removing existing guardrail and installing new guardrail at various locations along Route 2.  Motorists are requested to watch out for and observe the construction signs and reduced speeds.  Lane closures and short delays to traffic may be necessary for this work to be completed.
