Guam - Following years of roadblocks, the Tiyan Parkway project is finally getting off the ground.

According to Department of Public Works director Carl Dominguez, groundbreaking could happen as early as the first week of April.

"The project will start in April and it should be finished about a year later but there's a possibility that contractors might finish even earlier than a year because we put an incentive clause in this particular contract," he said.

Dominguez says there's an added incentive of a bonus if contractors complete the project before the year deadline. As we've been reporting, the project is touted to help ease traffic congestion in the central part of Guam.

Phase I of the project kicked off with the demolition and remediation of various airport facilities including the former police and fire department headquarters.
