Guam - Those who live in the village of Sinajana or commute through the central village may have to be patient for a bit longer.  Roadwork has been delayed due to problem with the composition of the asphalt being laid.

Gene Niemasz, project manager of Parsons Transportation Group, says tests are being done to determine how the mix should be adjusted for best results.  "The testing is going on now and we expect it to be we have some preliminary results on one side and we are waiting for the contractor, Hawaiian Rock, to complete their tests put the two together and do some additional analysis between the two labs to make sure they are testing the same products getting same results.  That all should all be complete in about two weeks," he explained.

Niemasz stressed that the delay is necessary to ensure the roadwork is done right the first time and meets the Federal Highway Administration's standards. He says completion of the project is still targeted for the end of the year.
