Guam - The Department of Public Works is trying to develop an acceptable proposal to ease congestion along Routes 8 and 16. DPW Director Andy Leon Guerrero says the government needs the military's approval to open an access road in Tiyan to help with the bumper to bumper traffic at the tri-intersection.
Discussions have already begun with the Navy, with Leon Guerrero saying, "We presented a plan that would crossover to the Tiyan properties, but the difficult task there is that we would have to go through the existing fuel lines that are buried between the Tiyan property and Route 16. We've gotten the okay to present plans whichever they're comfortable with to make sure that the pipelines are fully protected."
Once a design is completed, DPW will present it to the admiral for approval. Once accepted, DPW can move forward in creating an access road through Tiyan to ease congestion.
