Guam - Island motorists should take caution when using certain roads this week, as construction projects continue through Thanksgiving Weekend. Here's a guide to help you while you're out and about.

Dededo
Traffic control signs for the reconstruction and widening on Route 25 have been changed in order to move onto the next phase of this project.  Drivers are advised to observe all posted construction signs so traffic may flow smoothly through the area. Traffic heading toward Route 16/Airport will be detoured onto Bari Asi Street and Acho Latte.  Traffic coming from Route 16/Airport will be detoured from Alageta Road onto Kalamasa Road. Drivers continue to be advised that Alageta Road is closed to all but local traffic from Kalamasa Road to Route 26.  Drivers traveling through this area are requested to slow down in the construction area and on the local streets.

Sinajana

The pavement work at Tutujan (Sinajana) intersection is expected to be completed and traffic lanes returned to two lanes in both directions.  Drivers are requested to watch out for the change in traffic lanes and reduce their speeds in the construction areas. 

Barrigada
Traffic lanes at the Tri-Intersection will continue to be restricted to one lane in each direction.  The concrete work for the new roadway is proceeding and traffic lanes are anticipated to be moved to the new pavement in late January.  Drivers are requested to comply with the "DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ACCESS" sign at the Barrigada Fire Station on Route 8 when waiting for the traffic signal to change.

Yona 
Drivers heading to and from Yona are advised that lanes have been shifted for the construction work near the look out.  Drivers are advised to follow the construction signs that shift the lanes of traffic and reduce their speeds in the construction area.

Umatac 
Drivers using Route 2 in Agat and Umatac are advised that traffic lanes have been shifted at Cetti River.  Drivers are requested to look well in advance for the construction signs that shift the lanes of traffic and to reduce their speed in the construction area.

Talofofo
As the Route 17 pavement widening and strengthening project progresses, drivers are requested to be cautious and reduce their speed in the construction area especially at the sharp turns. Until the work is completed in June of 2011 drivers should anticipate lane restriction, increased travel time and short delays.

Mangilao
Construction crews will be installing street light poles, wiring traffic signals and installing loop sensors at the Route 16 – GMF / Guam Army National Guard intersection.  Drivers are asked to observe posted traffic signs, expect shifting lanes and short delays.
