Guam - This evening, representatives from the Guam International Airport Authority will appear before senators to provide an update on several of their ongoing projects, one of which includes the Tiyan Parkway, which GIAA executive director Mary Torres says progress has been made as they're working with the Federal Aviation Administration in 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," said Torres.
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. 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 scheduled for 6:30pm in the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
