Acting Governor Calls For A Traffic Summit To Help Relieve Congestion on Guam’s Roadways


Guam – Acting Governor Dr. Mike Cruz has called a meeting Thursday with officials from DPW, GPD and the Federal Highway office to consider aggressive options to help relieve the congestion on the island’s roadways.

In a release to the media this afternoon, the Acting Governor states:

“I have asked the Director of Public Works, a representative from the Division of Federal Highways, and the Chief of the Guam Police Department to aggressively consider all plausible options to alleviate the ongoing congestion on our roads.  I have called for a meeting early tomorrow with these officials to determine our best course of action. Though I am confident that reasonable and effective solutions will emerge from this approach, I will ask them to consider the use of bypass lanes; a change in government hours of operation from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., allowing for lighter traffic flow; and the execution of construction work after normal working hours.

“I want to thank our people for their ongoing patience.  Though we are experiencing some difficulties today, Guam’s roads will be better tomorrow.”
