Posted: Updated:

Guam - Road grading, excavation and installation of traffic signal poles will continue this week.  Drivers are advised to observe all posted construction signs to safely move through the construction zone.  Drivers are also requested to reduce their speeds in the construction zones and on the local streets. 

Dededo
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.  Additional stop signs and 15 mph speed limit signs are installed along Kalamasa Drive and Uhang Street to slow traffic and enhance safety in the work zone.  Road closures are still in effect for Alageta Road between Chalan Acho Nonak and Uhang Street.  Access to Bello Market and local traffic is provided through the construction area. All traffic lanes are open on the project and traffic signals are in normal operation.  No excessive delays are expected.

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 lining up for the Route 10  traffic signal.  Please use caution when moving through the construction zone.

Yona
Drivers heading to and from Yona are advised that lanes have been shifted while crews continue construction of the retaining wall near the overlook.  Drivers are advised to follow the construction signs that shift the lanes of traffic and reduce their speeds in the construction area.

Agat
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. 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.  This week the contractor will continue with roadway excavation at various locations throughout the project.  Drivers are advised that this work may require daytime lane closures which will result in short delays and increased travel time.

Mangilao
Construction crews will be installing new wire, a traffic signal pole and signal heads over travel lanes, and  other  signal accessories at the Route 16 - GMF / Guam Army National Guard intersection.  Drivers are asked to observe posted traffic signs, expect shifting lanes and short delays.
