Guam - Guam Healthcare Development, Inc. was awarded a conditional use permit from the Guam Land Use Commission today. The approval was given though on the caveat that public works first resolve the access point to the Guam Medical City private hospital that will be built in Dededo at the corner of Routes 1 and 3.
DPW Acting Director Carl Dominguez says they need more information from the developer, saying, "We've given them some parameters and some traffic data recently and so we are now waiting on them. We will work with them as hard as we can to make this work but I can't tell you this afternoon whether we'd approve a traffic signal installation there without their final study."
DPW officials already have concerns with the intersection as it is now and Dominguez says the department will work with the developer's engineers to see if another traffic light is necessary and what changes will need to be made to the road.
