Guam – After nearly two years, the route25/26 intersection is finally complete.

The project consisted of widening route 26 to include new turning lanes, bike lanes and paved shoulders. A new retention pond was added bringing the total project costs to $2.7 million. The project was completed by the Korando Corporation. According to DPW director Glenn Leon Guerrero, the project to improve one of the busiest intersections in Guam’s most populous community was supposed to take eight months and was bid out in June 0f 2014.

 

“Again Glenn mentioned it was supposed to be an eight month project has taken two years and of course there’s been a lot of, no pun intended, bumps in the road or pipes in the ground. It was a complicated process because, Dededo has grown. In the past with different agencies, there may be some difficulty in knowing exactly what infrastructure is in place. Some of the problems with DPW is finding out pipes, whether it was water or sewage pipes that…they didn’t know was going to be there!, I’m congratulating all Gov. Guam agencies too,” said Governor Eddie Calvo.

 

In October, DPW plans to put out a bid for the route 3 improvements.
