Guam - Good news for motorists down south as a groundbreaking ceremony was finally held for the Bile and Pigua Bridges Replacement Project in Merizo this morning. The project involves the reconstruction and widening of the bridges to address the immediate concerns of their structural integrity. Both Merizo mayor Ernest Chargualaf and Public Works director Carl Dominguez both expressed their excitement on the much-awaited project.

Chargualaf said, "It's just a long time inconvenience that had to be put to rest and the people can look forward to its completion so we can traverse smoothly through our village," while Dominguez added, "The new bridges will be longer and wider so when they're done it will be much safer not only for motor vehicles to cross but they'll have shoulders so that even cyclists and pediatricians can cross safely which wasn't the case with the original bridges before they were even closed down."

The $3.67 million project is expected to take 450 days to complete.
