Posted: Updated:

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 25 Alageta Road 
Drivers on Route 25 are requested to maintain their speeds at the posted 25MPH speed limit and be aware of continuing construction work in the area.



Route 8/10/16 (Tri-Intersection)

Route 8 and Route 16 traffic flow continues to be restricted to one lane as construction at the Tri-Intersection progresses.  Route 10 traffic 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. Motorists traveling through the area can expect delays and increased travel time.


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. 



Route 2 (Umatac) 
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 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 17 (Talofofo) 
Roadwork continues near the intersection of Route 4 and 17. Drivers can anticipate one lane closures and short delays when traveling in this area.  Motorists are requested to reduce their speed, observe all construction signs and be aware of workers and heavy equipment operating on and near the roadway.

 

Route 4 Togcha and Talofofo Bridges (Talofofo and Inarajan) 
Temporary stop lights at the Talofofo and Togcha bridges continue to control northbound and south bound traffic as these areas are restricted to one lane. Stop light timing is monitored and adjusted to minimize delays.  Drivers should expect short delays when traveling through these areas of Route 4.

 

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) 
The temporary bridge and detour at the Ylig Bridge construction site is anticipated to be open to traffic within the next week. Drivers should continue to expect daytime lane closures and short delays when traveling through this area.

 


Route 4 Togcha and Talofofo Bridges (Talofofo and Inarajan) 
Talofofo and Togcha Bridge reconstruction activities continue this week.  Motorists traveling on Route 4 in Talofofo are advised that traffic flow is controlled by temporary portable stop lights and the road is restricted to one lane.  Drivers should anticipate increased travel time on this section of Route 4. 

  

Route 4 Ylig Bridge (Yona) 
The temporary bridge at Route 4 Ylig and approaches for the detour onto and off the bridge on are nearing completion.  Traffic is anticipated to be detoured onto the temporary bridge and detours at the end of July.   Drivers can expect daytime lane closures and short delays when traveling through this area. 

 

Route 25 Alageta Road 
Route 25 Alageta Road is open to traffic.  Drivers are requested to maintain their speeds at the posted 25MPH speed limit.  Construction work continues at various locations and drivers are requested to be aware of construction workers and heavy equipment on the roadway.
