Guam - It's considered long overdue and today the Department of Public Works broke ground for the Route 25 and 26 intersection improvement project along Macheche and Bello Road in Dededo this morning.

The $2.5 million project consists of overlaying and widening Route 26 to improve approaches to the intersection including turning lanes, a new friction course, a new retention basin, signage and striping. The project will also finally reconfigure the traffic signal and add an advance flashing beacon. Dededo mayor Melissa Savares said, "The traffic light bars went up and the signal lights were put on, but they were never turned on and this will definitely ensure safety of all motorists traveling this area that's why this is very important."

DPW director Carl Dominguez says some of the delays were as a result of real estate and right-of-way issues. The project is 100 percent federally funded and was awarded to Korando Corporation. Completion is expected in the next eight months.
