Guam - The landscape of Tiyan will never look the same as it is out with the old and in with the new.  Today the Guam International Airport held a special ceremony for the first phase of demolition and remediation of various airport facilities including the former police and fire department headquarters. The demolition marks the first physical sign of the Tiyan Parkway.  

Airport board chair Ed Untalan told KUAM News, "This parkway has been a dream and at many times a nightmare for many administrations, but today the dream starts, the reality begins and we are all grateful for the determination and resolve by our esteemed governor and lieutenant governor to see this process through."

The governor and lieutenant governor were on hand to congratulate all of the parties involved in project that will cost a little over one million dollars. Governor Eddie Calvo says the new parkway will create an artery that motorists will be able to use for convenience and safety. 

Other demolition projects are in the works throughout 2014.
