Bill introduced for evening road projects

Posted: Updated:

Guam – Legislation was introduced that would mandate the Department of Public works to require quotes or estimates for the cost of night time construction when soliciting bids for contracts on road projects. Bill 196 introduced by Senator Mana Silva Taijeron would require DPW to determine the feasibility of nighttime construction when commencing these projects.

Sen. Taijeron states, "We owe it to the thousands of drivers who traverse Guam's roads to consider all avenues in relieving the congestion and delays they experience daily, and, if done correctly, night time construction is a viable option."

The measure would stipulate that work could only take place between 8pm and 6am if night construction is deemed feasible by DPW. While Taijeron says the measure does not mandate nighttime construction, she does say it ensures DPW receives information regarding project costs associated with nighttime work.
