Guam - If you're traveling along Guam's roadways, expect traffic around the island.

Yigo
Work continues along Route 1, as motorists traveling on Marine Corps Drive from Anderson to Dededo are advised that traffic is restricted to a single southbound lane at Wusstig Road.  This lane restriction is necessary for concrete pavement construction at the intersection.  Motorists should anticipate reduced speeds, increased travel time and short delays while this work is in progress.

Dededo
Route 25 (Alageta Road) is still being detoured to local roads on Kalamasa Street and Ahau Street for traffic heading from Route 26 to the airport.  Alageta Road is still restricted to one lane between Uhang Street and Chalan Galak Street for traffic heading toward Route 26.  Motorists are requested to follow the detour signs and reduce their speeds on the local streets.

Tamuning
Work also continues along Route 14 (San Vitores). Guardrail crews are removing existing guardrail and installing new guardrail on San Vitores from the Guam Hilton to Archbishop Felixberto Flores Circle.  Motorists should anticipate daytime lane closures and short delays on this section of San Vitores.

Barrigada
There's additionally work at Route 16, at the Barrigada Post Office intersection.  Roadway work continues in the center of Route 16 at the Barrigada Post Office.  Motorists are advised that heavy construction equipment will be working in the center of the road and are requested to follow the construction signs and reduce their speeds in the construction area.

Hagatna/Agana Heights
Also, expect more work along Route 4 from McDonald's to Route 10. Motorists are advised that traffic is still detoured to the newly completed portions of Route 4 between McDonald's and Canton Tutuhan Road.  Traffic heading uphill and downhill on this Section of Route 4 is still restricted to one lane for each direction. Construction activities also continue on Route 4 between Dero Road and Canton Tutuhan Road.  Motorists should anticipate lane restrictions, short delays and increased travel time on Route 4.

Barrigada
Finally, work continues at the Route 8/10/16 (Tri-Intersection).  Motorists are advised that beginning July 6 traffic will begin to be restricted to one lane of traffic on the Route 8 and Route 16 legs of the intersection.  The reconstruction of the road from the Barrigada Fire Station to Happy Mart will require that half of the existing road be closed for construction.  Motorists are advised that that this construction will have a major impact to traffic that uses the intersection.  Motorists should anticipate reduced lanes, delays and increased travel time.  Motorists should use alternate routes to avoid long delays and to reduce traffic congestion.
