DPW continues Tiyan talks with FAA, GIAA

by Michele Catahay

Guam - With construction work continuing at the tri-intersection in Barrigada, the Department of Public Works continues to find a resolution. DPW director Andy Leon Guerrero says on top of working with the residents and businesses affected by the construction, he says they've been meeting with the Federal Aviation Administration and the Guam International Airport Authority to come to a compromise to create an access road in Tiyan.

"The disadvantage is that we don't think we'll get it completed in time for the closing of the existing roadways and opening up the new one. We're going to be a little behind there, but I think we're closer to an option. It's something the FAA and GIAA will accept and once we take care of some of the kinks, then we will go ahead and move forward," said Leon Guerrero.  

According to the director, the proposed access road will go through the area in front of Cars Plus in Maite, go behind the pump station in Tiyan and intersect with Central Avenue. He couldn't say when talks will be finalized on this road.
