Posted: Updated:

by Michele Catahay

Guam - If you plan to make your way around Guam's roadways this week, expect some delays as road construction work continues throughout the island.

Yigo
If you're traveling along Route 1 in Yigo, southbound traffic will be shifted into the median to allow crews to reconstruct the pavement section approaching the intersection of Marine Corps Drive and Wusstig Road. Traffic will be restricted to one lane through the work zone during daytime hours. Anticipate short delays on Marine Corps Drive.

Dededo
Next there's work along Route 25 - Alageta Road. Traffic heading toward the airport from Route 26 will need to use Kalamasa Street or Ahau Street to get to Route 16. Crews have begun removing the pavement on Alageta Street in preparation to install new drainage. Reduce your speeds on the local streets and the construction area.

Hagatna-Ordot
Then, work continues on Route 4 from McDonald's to Route 10. Median construction in the center of Route 4 continues. You're requested to pay attention to construction signs and be aware of the heavy equipment going through the area. Crews will be installing guardrails, relocating utilities and working on electrical items during daytime hours. Anticipate daytime lane closures and short delays. Motorists should also anticipate lane closures and delays between 6pm and 6am, as crews have resumed night paving operations. You should consider alternate routes.

Barrigada
Next, crews will continue installing electrical items at the Route 16 intersection at the Guam Main Facility U.S. Post Office in Barrigada. Anticipate daytime lane closures. Then, work continues at the intersection of routes 8, 10 and 16. Roadway work will continue on Route 8a for the detour next to Happy Mart.  Follow the construction signs in this area and should anticipate lane closures and short delays.

Tamuning
Lastly, expect delays along Route 10a (airport road). Guardrail crews will be working on removing existing guardrail and installing new guardrail on Airport Road from Route 16 to Marine Corps Drive.  Daytime lane closures will be necessary for this guardrail work and motorists should anticipate short delays.
