Asan Embankment Restoration Project Begins this Month

520

Guam – The Guam Department of Public Works is advising that work will begin this Thursday, February 17, on the Route 6 embankment restoration project in Asan.

That means that Route 6A, Murray Road,  will be closed.

Construction, detour and road closure signs will be installed on Route 6 (Nimitz Hill) uphill and downhill from its intersection with Route 6A (Murray Road).

The embankment project is located on Route 6A (Murray Road) in the village of Asan, from approximately 200 feet east of Hegao Street to approximately 200 feet west of Bir’dan Bayak Road.

The project will repair 220 feet of the westbound roadway and embankment improvements, including installation of 80 linear feet of reinforced concrete retaining wall.

A total of $312,275.00 has been awarded by the Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Public Works to Rex International.  The project is estimated to be completed in 220 calendar days.

The Department of Public Works thanks the motoring public for their continued patience and ask all to proceed with caution.
