Guam - The ribbon was cut this morning on the newly paved road for the Togcha to Ipan Beach Park Project along Route 4. The stretch of road in Talofofo has been a concern for southern residents as the slippery pavement has resulted in many car accidents. Public Works director Carl Dominguez says for the first time, this road project will use a new open grade friction course asphalt never used on Guam.

"Now we have the new formulation, we don't use the Guam coral anymore, the supplier imports the basalt aggregate to make the anti-friction properties of the surface last longer, so we're very happy with the project," he said.

The project consists of roadway widening and pavement section reconstruction and super elevation at curves. The project cost over $800,000.
