Posted: Updated:

Guam - Republican senator Telo Taitague introduced legislation that would authorize $1.5 million for the repair of village streets impacted by motorists to avoid traffic congestion as a result of road construction. Bill 474 will appropriate these funds from the Road and Pothole Repair Fund to repair, build and mitigate damages to alternative routes caused by ongoing road projects.

Senator Taitague told KUAM News, "Before the construction starts they should either strengthen the village street the alternative route before the construction of the main highways.  Or vice-versa, once the main highway is complete that same construction company will repair the ware and tare on the village streets."

Taitague adds that the bill would also require the Department of Public Works to include funding for alternative routes in any future road construction request for proposal.
