Guam - A 1,000-lb. World War II vintage bomb will be defused this weekend.  Construction workers at the Naval Base discovered the ordnance on Monday when it was hit by a backhoe. Explosive Ordnance Disposal Detachment Marianas examined the bomb that was buried beneath a construction site and determined the fuse must be removed before it can be transported for proper disposal.

A portion of Naval Base Guam will be temporarily closed on Saturday from 9am-2pm and those living or working within 3,000 feet of the bomb will be temporarily evacuated.  Traffic will also be restricted on Saturday until the procedure is completed and access to the base will be through the back gate.

The EOD team has determined that there is no danger to the public prior to Saturday's detonation.
