Guam - The planning and design started in 2007 with construction beginning in late 2010 and today the ribbon was finally cut on the completion of the Ylig Bridge Replacement Project in Yona.

The new three-span, 256-foot long bridge includes road and bridge approach improvements along with roadside drainage, permanent traffic markings and new signage. DPW director Carl Dominguez thanked southern motorists for their patience and support, saying, "There were many times when this two lane road was reduced to a single road causing travel time delays, thankfully all our motorists took the delays in stride something all of us at DPW deeply appreciate, our collective quality of life will benefit immensely from this project that will serve our people from generations to come."

The project required the installation of a temporary bridge while the final bridge was being built. Some of the delay in the project resulted in the discovery of dozens of ancient burial remains, an unexploded ordnance from World War II, an ancient pebble paved flooring and endangered pacific tree snails along the Ylig River bank.  The project cost $8.1 million fully funded by the Federal Highway Administration.
