Guam - A groundbreaking ceremony was held this morning to celebrate the first day of the Route 1 Resurfacing Project that will improve roadways in Yigo, Piti, and Asan.

Yigo mayor Rudy Matanane says it's an issue of public safety. He said the road is known by many as Jafjaf Road. "I guess it's because of all the holes that's on the road people have to sway to the shoulder, I actually have had calls from runners being hysterical because they were just missed by flying cars," he said.

The $630,000 project will not only resurface roadways, but will also replace pavement markings, and is fully funded by the Federal Highway Administration. It is expected to be completed in May.
