Guam - In the southern part of Guam, road renovations are turning into road rage.

Even though it's a project to improve as Asalonso Road in Malojloj, it's proving to a be a headache for motorists forced to wait in long lines. An average of 50 cars are backed up in traffic waiting for their turn to pass through the single lane roadway and according to DPW, sometimes the wait is a half hour. Bus driver Mack Pedro sometimes the wait is 30 minutes. He said, "We have to come in extra early and try and make it as quickly as possible to pick up the rest of the kids. It does put a damper on it."

Inarajan mayor Doris Lujan says she is concerned about what will happen when there is an emergency and units need to get through the area hastingly. Lujan says she is in communication with the construction company ICC which has assured her that if an emergency was to occur they do have a plan of action to allow emergency vehicles through. At this time G4S Security is on site serving as a pilot vehicle leading the traffic through the construction to ensure safety. According to Lujan the construction on the Asalonso is related to the Dandan Solar Farm and will be complete in November.
