DPW placing 65 new bus shelters

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Efforts aren't just underway to ensure school campuses and cafeterias are safe for students. Public Works will be installing 65 new wood and tin bus shelters around the island. The shelters were constructed by Public Works and the Guam Contractors Association Trades Academy. 

DPW Director Joanne Brown adds school buses also went through a thorough and complete safety inspection. She said, "We spent over $200,000 in lease buses prior to the staff and the money and resources including the bill that you voted on with senator Tom Ada that provided bond funding to do the repair work, so this bus is 120, which gives us some comfort going into the school year."

DPW will be installing the newly constructed bus shelters at critical areas in the villages that were identified by island mayors.
