Guam - The temporary Ylig Bridge structure arrived on island this week. Department of Public Works Deputy Director Carl Dominguez says the bridge is currently being housed at the Smithbridge facility. He says the temporary bridge will be adjacent to the existing Ylig Bridge.
He says construction will begin within the next couple of weeks, and should be complete by this June. He says they are relocating power poles at the site before the project begins. Dominguez adds the temporary bridge is not expected to impede traffic, noting, "It'll be a two-lane bridge so that you have northbound and southbound traffic through it and that'll give the contractor the opportunity to work full time on the bridge."
The new Ylig Bridge is expected to be complete by the beginning of next year.
