Road Safety Reminder for the Week
Pavement markers should indicate to the driver:
- Where on the roadway he should be driving.
- Where his visibility ahead is limited and passing is restricted.
- Where he can expect traffic in the adjacent lane to be going in the opposite direction.
- Where he may safely wait for an opportunity to make a left turn.
The COLOR of the lines tells the motorist instantly whether he is on a one-way or two way road:
- Yellow lines are used to divide roads with two-way traffic.
- White lines divide lanes or roadways where the traffic is going in the same direction.
On Guam, small reflective markers are used more than paint to indicate these pavement markings, since paint does not last long.
Guam Construction Update
Motorists are advised to drive cautiously through the 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.
The southbound lane at Fern Terrace is closed through mid-October. The southbound traffic has been diverted onto what is currently the southbound left turn and acceleration lanes. Motorists are advised to drive cautiously through the construction zones, observe all posted speed limit and construction signs.
