Guam - The Department of Public Works this morning broke ground on the Asan and Aguada Bridges Rehabilitation Project. The $1.1 million effort is 100% federally funded by the Federal Highway Administration and awarded to Maeda Pacific.

DPW director Carl Dominguez said, "They're going to reinforce the bridges so that these two bridges can take the heavy loads that we anticipate the military bringing in to Guam and also the different construction companies that are going to build the infrastructure that the military buildup is going to be here in the coming years."

The project is expected to be completed in November.  In the meantime, on Friday a groundbreaking ceremony will be held at Jeff's Pirates Cove for the Route 4, Togcha to Ipan Beach Park project.
