Guam - The Guam Police Department is currently entertaining a request to increase the speed limit from Adelup to Naval Station to 45-miles per hour.
At a meeting held on Thursday, Police Chief Fred Bordallo says Asan and Piti mayors as well as the Department of Public Works discussed the possibility.
He does note that there are pressing concerns as one section of road was nicknamed "Dead Man's Curve." since the speed limit in this area was lowered, GPD has noticed a decrease in crashes.
Other concerns include peeling asphalt and nearby bus stops.
Currently the speed limit from Adelup to Asan is 25 miles per hour with Asan to Naval Station designated 35 miles per hour.
The Legislative Ethics Committee has dismissed the complaint against Senator Fernando Esteves, and says it considers the matter closed. Resident Barry Mead filed the complaint against Esteves for his role in a protest earlier this year against the live fire training range at Andersen Air Force Base's Northwest Field.More >>
