Info briefing on GIAA's finances

Guam - Lawmakers will hear on the progress of several of the Guam International Airport Authority's projects and progress along with where the airport it is at financially at an information briefing tomorrow evening. One of those projects includes the Tiyan Parkway in which GIAA director Mary Torres says much progress has been made as they are working with the federal aviation administration providing assurance that connectivity will be available once Central Avenue is closed.

"But we are looking to coordinate so that the closure of Central Avenue and the opening of the connector road of Tiyan Parkway more or less coincide and that's our objective right now," she said.

The Tiyan Parkway is ultimately part of the opening of the runway with GIAA having completed the extension and most recently the groundbreaking of the instrument landing system last week. Last August, GovGuam was at risk of losing more than $5,000,000 in federal funding if a decision is not made soon on the Tiyan Parkway issue.

The information briefing is set for Tuesday evening at 6:30 at the Public Hearing Room.
