Traffic Advisory for the Week of March 8-14

Road Safety Reminder for the Week of March 8-14, 2021

PAVEMENT MARKINGS
Pavement markers should indicate to the driver:

  1. Where on the roadway he should be driving.
  2. Where his visibility ahead is limited and passing is restricted.
  3. Where he can expect traffic in the adjacent lane to be going in the opposite direction.
  4. Where he may safely wait for an opportunity to make a left turn.

The COLOR of the lines tells the motorist instantly whether he is on a one-way or two way road:

  1. Yellow lines are used to divide roads with two-way traffic.
  2. White lines divide lanes or roadways where the traffic is going in the same direction.

On Guam, small reflective markers are used more than paint to indicate these pavement markings, since paint does not last long.

Guam Construction Update (as of 3/5/2021)

Route 3 Widening From Route 28 to Chalan Kareta

On Wednesday, 3/3/2021 a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held for this project which was 100% funded by the Department of Defense as part of the Defense Access Roads program. The 42.6M project, designed by SSFM was completed in July 2020 by Black Construction with Construction Management by Stanley Consulting and TG Engineers. The scope of this project was to widen a section of approximately 2.8 miles on Route 3 starting near the intersection of Route 28 and ending near the intersection with Chalan Kareta. This section of highway was widened from 2 lanes to 5 lanes to match the existing lane configuration on the section of Route 3 from Route 1 to Route 28. This project included the addition of a bicycle path, pedestrian pathway, drainage improvements, utility relocation, installation of new utility corridors and two new traffic signals.
