Guam - Relief may be ahead for those whose commute takes them through the tri-intersection of Routes 8, 10 and 16 in Barrigada.  The Department of Public Works says they are still working on a way to help alleviate traffic congestion by creating an alternate route through Tiyan.

Jess Garcia, deputy director of DPW, explained the latest efforts for one of Guam's most congested intersections, saying, "As of today what's going on with the alternate bypass is that we are just having the plans being reviewed and approved then we can start working on bypass probably by the next week or so we will be able to get that bypass started."

Garcia says the plans must be approved by the Navy and the engineer staff and DPW. The plan involves using the adjacent road in Tiyan by creating an entrance by the Guam Main Facility Post Office with one-way traffic southbound exiting near the Barrigada Fire Station.
