Guam - International Bridge Corporation averted a delay in the construction of the new John F. Kennedy High School in Upper Tumon. IBC Vice President Miguel Bordallo says land swap negotiations with the Guam Police Department to construct a police koban on the property would have stalled the project.
However, he says they worked with the Department of Education and GPD to swap land near Chief Brodie for land near the Kmart intersection. GPD plans to use the facility to provide a greater police presence at the campus as well as host other community public safety programs. Bordallo says the understanding is that GPD will only have a koban and not a police headquarters, as previously stated by GPD Captain Paul Suba.
The new koban is anticipated to be complete at the same time as the new JFK High this summer.
