Guam - New Department of Public Works director Joanne Brown hit the road today, wanting to see firsthand the problems and delays motorists are experiencing. She was at the tri-intersection nightmare in Barrigada this morning.
She told KUAM News, "We are looking at having meetings not just internally with the contractor and DPW, but we will meet again with the businesses and key residents that are abutting the road construction project that have some very legitimate concerns."
The Barrigada project faces yet another delay - it won't be completed for another six months because underground utility lines, some of which were not recorded, have forced the contractor to revise their plans. Brown meanwhile also plans to meet with residents and businesses, like butlers incorporated in Sinajana who are concerned about a median blocking access to their stores.
