Guam – A ribbon cutting was held for the Hagatna Pedestrian Crosswalk.
The $280,000 dollar project included a crosswalk, a new crosswalk traffic light signal, streetlights, lane striping and minor landscaping. $201,000 came from a grant from the Federal Highway Administration and $80,000 from the Guam Economic Development Authority.
The crosswalk project was created to help pedestrians safely cross one of Guam’s busiest roads during FESTPAC.
Governor Eddie Calvo says, “As the revitalization of Hagatna moves forward, there are going to be so many events and venues on both side of Marine Drive and shortly, we’ll be opening up the new museum so these are exciting times. Then for Chamorro Village, we’ll use those huts for expansion of the Chamorro Village, not only for the Wednesday night market but a form of farmer’s market as well to sell our local produce and locally made products. So with that, congratulations to all involved.”
