Guam - The Federal Aviation Administration has given the Calvo Administration approval to keep Central Avenue open for the island's motorists. The road was scheduled to be closed in December due to a Congressional mandate that requires designated runway safety zones.
Governor Eddie Calvo met with FAA officials in Hawaii, providing assurances that the government would complete Phase I of the Tiyan Parkway project by 2015. Phase I extends from the old Guam Police Department headquarters in Tiyan out to Cars Plus in Maite.
The approval means that the estimated between 14,000 and 15, 000 motorists who use Central Avenue on their daily commute will continue to be able to do so.
