Route 2 Cetti Rock Catchments Wall
Drivers on Route 2 traveling south of the Cetti Bay Culvert are advised that daytime traffic shifts and lane changes are in effect directing motorists away from the active construction area. Delays and increased travel time can be anticipated as drivers are urged to reduce their speed and change lanes when needed.

Route 2 Cetti Bay Culvert
Motorists traveling through Route 2 at the Cetti Bay Culvert can anticipate shifting lanes as traffic control measures direct traffic away from the active construction area.   Drivers are advised to reduce speed to the posted limits.  Drivers should expect delays and increased travel time.

Route 17 (Talofofo)
Drivers are advised that the construction on Cross Island Road requires short one lane detours and changes to the traffic patterns.  Drivers should anticipate short delays and increased travel time.

Route 8/10/16 (Tri-Intersection)

Traffic continues to be restricted to one lane in each direction on Routes 8 and 16.  Traffic on Route 10 from Mangilao now includes a left-turn onto Route 8 and a right-turn lane onto Route 16.  These left-turn and right-turn lanes will help increase traffic flow through the intersection.  Drivers traveling through the Tri-Intersection are urged to reduce their speed and proceed cautiously as construction continues.

Drivers continue to be requested to stop behind the painted stop lines and the “Stop Here on Red” signs when waiting for the light to change at the traffic signal.  These lines and signs have been placed so that trucks and buses can have enough room to make the turn at the intersection.

All businesses fronting the construction area remain open and are accessible during construction.
