Guam - A public hearing is scheduled for tomorrow to gather testimony on legislation that would condemn property in Merizo. Bill 355 would authorize the Department of Public Works to acquire the land for the Pigua reconstruction project.  If you've ever driven in Merizo, you most likely have driven on the Bile and Pigua bridges. If those names don't ring a bell, you're probably more familiar with the one-lane traffic you might have experienced on those very bridges. The project has been years in the making and DPW needs the legislation in order to move forward. The public hearing is scheduled for 6pm in the Legislature's Public Hearing Room.
