FAA rejects government's parkway proposal

Guam - If the Federal Aviation Administration rejects the Government of Guam's latest proposal for the Tiyan Parkway, the island could see another environmental impact statement process begin.  Department of Public Works Director Andy Leon Guerrero says the FAA rejected the government's proposal to make the parkway run through East Sunset Boulevard in front of the police headquarters out toward Route 8 by Cars Plus.

The FAA, however, is opposed to that idea and is adamant the government make the access road run through the old officers' housing area, where original landowners are residing, and out to Route 8.  Leon Guerrero says DPW offered to construct an underpass that would connect to Route 8.

Leon Guerrero admits if there is no compromise to the current stalemate, the government will be forced to go through the EIS process to determine which alternative is more realistic.
