The Roadwork Ahead: MONDAY November 19 – Sunday November 25


Guam – The Guam Department of  Public Works has released the following list of road construction projects that may cause traffic delays in the week ahead.


Route 4 Ylig Bridge (Yona)
Route 4 at the temporary Ylig Bridge will be completely closed to all but emergency vehicles for four 30-minute intervals beginning at approximately 1:30 a.m., 2:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. occurring daily from November 29 through December 15.  During this period, bridge girders will be off-loaded from a transport vehicle and erected upon the bridge.

Route 1/11 (Port Authority Road)
Continuing through approximately November 30, drivers will encounter lane shifts and narrowed lanes on Route 11 on the ramps as they enter and exit Route 11 via Route 1.  The southbound right-turn ramp from Route 1 to Route 11 will remain closed to traffic.  Motorists traveling from Route 11 toward Route 1 will be limited to one lane turning north and one lane turning south onto Route 1 (Marine Corps Drive.)

Asphalt paving is scheduled on November 23 and 24 on Route 11 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. starting approximately ½ mile west of the Route 1/ 11 intersection and progressing to the west.  Two-way traffic will be maintained during the paving work although motorists can expect to encounter lane shifts and narrowed lanes.

The intersection at Industrial Avenue and Route 11 will be reduced to a single lane of traffic until November 30.

Route 1/ 8 (Hagåtña Bridges)
Construction on this roadway project continues this week with the two right (outer) lanes heading west on Route 4 approaching the intersection restricted to right turns only and the entrance into the Paseo Loop from Route 4 restricted to a single (left) lane.

The contractor will be positioning equipment, driving piles, excavating and installing utilities on the south side of the Hagåtña Bridge Replacement Project. The work is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete. All motorists are advised to proceed with caution through the area and to obey all traffic signs and flagmen.

Route 4 from McDonalds to Route 10

Motorists may encounter short-term temporary lane closures as the contractor completes final details on the project.  Motorists are asked to use caution and to observe all construction signs, traffic control flaggers and posted speed limits.

Route 4 (Pago Bay to Route 17)
Paving operations will continue this week on the hill between the Pago Bay development and the overlook.  Weather permitting, motorists will experience intermittent traffic delays and lane closures at various locations while construction crews reconstruct the asphalt pavement.

Traffic will be restricted to a single lane periodically over the Thanksgiving weekend to provide a safe work zone for the pavement construction. Motorists should expect minor delays when traveling through this area and are asked to use caution and to observe all construction signs and posted speed limits

Route 7A (Hagåtña)

Construction is nearly complete on Route 7A.  Motorists can expect temporary lane shifts between Routes 4 and 8 as the contractor installs pavement markings.

Route 17 Cross Island Road (Talofofo)
Work continues on Route 17 as the contractor places pavement markers and completes other minor works along the roadway.  Motorists may experience temporary lane shifts and minor delays when traveling through this area and are asked to use caution and observe all construction signs and posted speed limits.

Taleyfak Spanish Bridge (Agat)
Motorists traveling in this area can expect brief delays while the contractor continues to work in this area.  Please be aware of safety personnel directing traffic as construction equipment moves across the road or trucks enter or exit the job site.
