Guam - The Department of Public Works continues its efforts to remediate 75 of the island's sidewalks to bring them into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.  The Department of Public Works entered into a settlement agreement with Roland Taimanglo who filed the lawsuit against the government back in 2001 for violations of the ADA. 

As a result of the agreement, Public Works agreed to fix many of the island's sidewalks and bring them into compliance with ADA standards.  To date, DPW has completed 49 out of the original 75 disputes sites using grant money from the housing and urban development agency and some with local funding.  DPW has until November 15, 2019 to complete the remediation at sidewalks along Marine Corps Drive and on other major thoroughfares including Route 16, Airport Road and Governor Carlos Camacho Road.
