Guam - Those living in the north especially students, parents and teachers at Okkodo High School can now expect a safer commute along Route 3. Today, Governor Eddie Calvo, the Department of Education and Public Works cut the ribbon for the newly installed traffic light in front of the Dededo school's campus.
Department of Education superintendent Jon Fernandez told KUAM News, "Today what we did, it's also part of that project was we installed a new stop light system to help ensure traffic safety particularly for parents and students who are coming in and out of the school it's also needed because of the traffic flow that goes from the northern part of the island and the new medical center that's opening up."
The project cost approximately $1.3 million and is part of the progress in the expansion of Okkodo High School. Today officials were given a walkthrough of the campus which is expected to increase by 70,000 square feet enough to accommodate up to 2,000 students. The construction work is expected to be completed by July this year.
