145

Guam – The Guam Department of Public Works provides the following list of  road construction projects which may cause traffic headaches in the week ahead. Route 25 Alageta Road

As construction crews continue to install storm water systems, relocate utilities and construct retaining walls, drivers should expect heavy work activity in the area along Alageta Street from Mendioka Street to Chandiya Street. This work area is restricted to one way traffic past Chalan Acho Latte.  All motorists are requested to not go against the flow of traffic as it poses safety hazards to other drivers, residents and the construction crew. Drivers are requested to observe and follow all construction signs including reduced speeds in the construction areas and detours.   Ahau Lane is still closed to traffic at Alageta Street due to construction activities.

Traffic heading toward Route 16/Airport will continue to be detoured onto Bari Asi Street and Acho Latte.  Drivers coming from Route 16/Airport can now use Alageta Road all the way to Macheche Road.  Drivers are advised that additional stop signs and 15 mph speed limit signs have been installed along Kalamasa Drive and Uhang Street for safety in the work areas.  DPW requests that drivers be extra careful and observe the posted speed limits and stop for school buses loading and unloading children.

Drivers are advised that  Alageta is closed between Acho Latte and Akudi Street between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm.  Traffic during this time is detoured to Acho Latte and Bari Asi Street.  Access is provided to only local traffic within the closed roadway section.

All traffic lanes on Route 4 from McDonalds to Route 10 are open with fully operational traffic signals. No delays are expected in this construction area.

Route 8/10/16 (Tri-Intersection)

Tri-intersection traffic lanes continue to be restricted to one lane in each direction while construction work continues.  Drivers need to allow for increased travel time and delays due to this construction work.  Drivers continue to be requested to comply with the “DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ACCESS” in front of the Barrigada Fire Station when waiting for the traffic signal to change.  The public is also reminded that all businesses remain open and are accessible to vehicular traffic during construction.
