Guam - Island roadwork continues through some of Guam's busiest villages. Here's your weekly RoadWatch report to help you navigate through some of the tougher spots.

Route 2 (Umatac) 
Route 2 Umatac Baseball Culvert 
Construction on Route 2 at the Umatac Baseball Field culvert will continue this week so drivers traveling through this area are urged to reduce their speed and observe all posted construction signs. Delays and increased travel time should be expected.

Route 2 Cetti Rock Catchments Wall 
Daytime traffic shifts and lane changes are in effect for traffic traveling south of the Cetti Bay Culvert construction area. Delays and increased travel time can be anticipated as drivers are urged to reduce their speed and change lanes when needed.

Route 2 Cetti Bay Culvert 
Due to erosion caused by heavy rains, Route 2 will be reduced to one lane just south of the Cetti Bay overlook headed towards Umatac from Agat for safety. The lane shift will remain in effect until further notice.

Drivers traveling on Route 2 are advised to use caution when driving through the area and observe all traffic control signs placed in advance of the lane closure. This includes all warning, directional, speed and stop signs.  This lane closure is necessary to avoid compromising the safety of the general public and workers as the construction of the damaged culverts under the roadway continues.

Route 17 (Talofofo) 
Roadwork will continue this week near the intersection of Route 4 and Route 17 in Talofofo. Motorists are requested to reduce their speed and be aware of heavy construction equipment and workers on or near the roadway.  Shifting lanes, short one lane closures and brief delays can be expected when traveling in this area.

Route 4 Togcha and Talofofo Bridges (Talofofo and Inarajan) 
Drivers traveling on Route 4 at the Togcha and Talofofo Bridges are advised that traffic continues to be restricted to one lane.  Temporary stop lights are in place with timing monitored and adjusted to minimize delays.  Increased travel time and short delays should be anticipated while driving through these area.

Route 6A (Murray Road) Asan 
Route 6A Murray Road remains closed while construction work is in progress. Drivers are advised to observe all construction, detour and road closure signs.

Route 4 Ylig Bridge (Yona) 
Temporary bridge and detours construction at Ylig Bridge is nearly complete with traffic anticipated to be re-routed by the first week of August. Drivers on Route 4 can expect daytime lane closures and short delays when traveling through this area.

Route 25 Alageta Road 
Construction work at various locations on Route 25 continues and drivers are requested to maintain their speeds at the posted 25MPH speed limit.  Motorist traveling through this area are requested to be aware of construction workers and heavy equipment on the roadway.

Route 8/10/16 (Tri-Intersection) 
Traffic at the Tri-Intersection continues to be restricted to one lane on Routes 8 and 16. Traffic on Route 10 from Mangilao includes a left-turn onto Route 8 and a right-turn lane onto Route 16 to help increase traffic flow through the intersection.  Drivers traveling through the Tri-Intersection can expect delays and increased travel time as construction progresses.

Drivers are requested to stop behind the painted stop lines and the "Stop Here on Red" signs at the intersection.  These lines and signs have been placed so that trucks and buses have enough room to safely make turns at the intersection.

All businesses fronting the construction area remain open and are accessible during construction.
