Guam airport running out of money to complete new arrivals corridor

The airport is aiming to finish the first phase of its beleaguered third-floor international arrivals corridor on November 1st.

The Guam International Airport Authority is running out of money to complete the third-floor international arrivals corridor.

Earlier this year, the GIAA board asked airport management to undertake a review of the project.

At this afternoon’s board meeting, construction manager Kent Hsieh presented his report. He pointed out that 80 percent of the money has been spent but he made it clear that 80 percent of the project has not been completed.

The arrivals corridor is unlikely to be finished by July as earlier projected.

“We’re looking at 80 percent completion. This is really not a good gauge as to where we are physically. It’s based on billing. Based on this, we only have less than 20 percent,” Hsieh said.

Hsieh presented a change order to the board for their approval, seeking a new date for completion of the project. The board had not yet acted on that as of news time.
