Tumon congestion concerns GHRA members

Guam - The traffic congestion and road rage isn't just limited to Route 4 and the tri-intersection, but also in the heart of Tumon. The Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association is working with the Guam Visitors Bureau and Public Works to prevent as many disruptions as possible.  The ongoing construction and repair of paver blocks along San Vitores Road has created bottlenecks. 

GHRA president Mary Torre says the main concern is public safety especially for tourists walking in the area and communication with the public. "Not only are there construction of roads but also buildings and anyone who is doing improvement on their buildings and other structures, they should always be concerned about people walking in the area. It should have noticeable signs, really have an area that has been blocked off for public safety, blocking an intersection in order to create a new intersection," she explained.

Torre is urging DPW to have contractors at least create a walkway so that tourists and residents alike can walk across safely. The construction is expected to take about six months.
