Guam - District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood is contemplating whether she will order the Department of Public Works to move up its timeline for repairs to Route 4, leading to the Layon landfill. Repairs to Route 4 are included in DPW's federally funded projects under  the Guam Transportation Improvement Plan. In this plan the repairs aren't slated until the year 2028.

During today's hearing Inarajan Mayor Doris Lujan and former Inarajan resident Speaker Judi Won Pat testified about the hazards of traversing along the road. The federal judge is deciding whether to mandate the repairs as part of the Ordot Consent Decree or order DPW to make the project one of its top priorities.
