RoadWatch Report - Week of September 3

by Joan Aguon Charfauros

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 
Route 25 is open to traffic. Drivers are requested to maintain their speeds at the posted 25MPH speed limit and observe all construction signs.

 


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 are reminded to not block the intersections of the side streets as you exit the construction area. 


Drivers traveling through this area 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 
Drivers are advised that traffic lanes remain shifted on Route 2 at the Cetti Bay Culvert abd construction area is open to two lanes of travel. All are urged to reduce speed and observe the posted construction signs.

 


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. Please watch for workers on the road shoulders.



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)
 
Preparations to replace the Ylig Bridge on Route 4 continue while the temporary bridge and detour at the construction site is open to traffic. Short delays and daytime lane closures can be anticipated when traveling through this area.
