Guam - Drainage improvements and the discovery of possible ancient artifacts have resulted in delays to ongoing road and bridge repair projects.  According to Public Works latest update provided to the District Court, the Route 4 from Pago Bay to Route 17 project is delayed approximately 180 days due to a change order to the Pago Bay drainage.  

DPW also reports that there still isn't an approved job mix formula for the road surface.  The project was scheduled for completion on March 17.  Meanwhile, an assessment is being done to determine how long the Togcha and Talofofo bridges will be delayed. Bone fragments and pottery shards were discovered last week by September 1.

An archaeologist is assisting with the ongoing assessment.
