Heading to Hagatna? Expect gridlock.

Guam - Residents traveling along Route 4 heading toward Guam's capitol village of Hagatna should expect some delays when traveling in the morning to get to work and school. Sinajana vice-mayor Robert Hofmann says motorists should expect a 15-20 minute delay, as road construction continues in that area. The contractor is working on reconstructing the roadway and replacing a median. Hofmann says he's been working with the contractor to ensure a flagman is placed there to help with traffic.

"Our residents understand," Hofmann stated, adding, "it's been in the village news for a while that this was going under construction. We saw it progress coming from the Route 10 area. You saw it move up. It was just a matter of time before they got to sinajana. The residents are pretty patient about it. It makes it safer for them to enter their areas of living."

This is one of several congested areas due to road construction, most especially during rush hour.
