Guam - The road along George Washington High School will continue to be a hazard for students until the Department of Public Works can find funding. According to DPW director Joanne Brown, GW staffers have approached her agency about correcting the narrow road, which also lacks sidewalks and signage, but there's little she can do.

She said, "It all comes down to funding and right now we don't have specific funding allocated. I know there's issues in regards to the crosswalk we may be looking at the school but in terms of the actual rebuilding of that road it all comes down to funding and when we have it available we can move forward on it."

GW assistant principal Gaylene Cruz says a student was almost hit a few weeks ago by a speeding driver. The road sees increased traffic with the school's double-session schedule.
