Guam - With leadership from the airport, Public Works and Land Management on hand, Governor Eddie Calvo signed a memorandum of understanding this afternoon starting the process of transferring property owned by the airport to Public Works setting into motion the construction of the Tiyan Parkway after 20 years.

"This has been an ongoing process and it's been a major concern which is the Central Avenue and ensuring that we have access for our general public between Route 8 and Route 1 and ensuring that we continue this access as we move along in complying with some of our federal regulations as well as building better highways on our island," he said.

The MOU ultimately places the airport land into the Federal Register so that after 30 days DPW can purchase the property that will then be followed by an appraisal. Federal highways can now move forward to finalize the appraisal of the airport property so it can provide DPW with the federal funds to purchase the airport properties.

Meanwhile it was just last month when the Federal Aviation Administration gave the Calvo Administration approval to keep Central Avenue open for the estimated 14,000 to 15,000 motorists who use it daily. Phase I of the Tiyan Parkway Project is set to be completed by Summer 2015.
