TRAFFIC ADVISORY FOR MAY 13-19

Posted: Updated:

 

Road Safety Reminder for the Week


THE RIGHT OF WAY RULES (Part 3 of 6) 

Left Turns:

When you approach an intersection, give the proper signal for at least 100 feet before turning. The law requires you to wait until it is safe for you to complete your turn. You must give the right-of-way to all cars approaching from the opposite direction on the same roadway that are close enough to be dangerous, and you may make the turn only when it is safe to do so. These rules are especially important on divided highways with several lanes, where you must consider the danger of approaching cars in each lane while turning. These rules also apply to left turns into an alley, private road or property, or driveway. (Motor Vehicle Code of Guam Section 3321). 


Guam Construction Update 

Motorists are advised to drive cautiously through all construction zones, observe all posted speed limit and construction signs, and carefully heed to flaggers. Alternative routes and/or adjusting drive times when feasible are encouraged. 

Route 3 Widening 

Construction activities are ongoing along Route 3 from just north of Route 28. Motorists are advised of the traffic shift on Route 3 between Chalan Castro and Potts Junction from the existing roadway to the new construction. Motorists are advised to expect lane closures and flagger-controlled traffic. 

Route 1/3 Intersection Improvements 

The DPW contractor, Maeda Pacific Corp., has scheduled to work on storm drain pipes. Motorists are advised that there will be lane closures from Monday 05/13/19 through Sunday 05/19/19. 

  • Route 1 northbound right lane near the Route 3 intersection will be closed. Two (2) through lanes will be provided.
  • Route 1 U-Turn lane at the Route 3 intersection will be closed.

Motorists are advised to merge to the open lanes as directed by traffic signs. 

Route 1 and Route 8 Resurfacing 

From Monday 05/13/19 through Sunday 05/19/19, the DPW contractor, Hawaiian Rock Products, will continue working on the new traffic signal at the Route 8/Canada-Toto Loop Road intersection between 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Motorists are advised to expect lane closures, lane shifts, and flagger-controlled traffic in these areas.
