The 2030 Guam Transportation Program (GTP) is a comprehensive, holistic, and integrated long-term strategy to improve transportation infrastructure and operations throughout Guam. The Government of Guam through its Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Department of Administration, Division of Public Transportation Services as well as the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has partnered to prepare the plan.
The plan addresses Guam’s anticipated multimodal transportation needs including roadway, bicycle, pedestrian and transit facilities. The GTP includes forecasts for population, employment, and traffic growth through the year 2030 including impacts associated with the proposed U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) multiple services build up. Sustainable financing and project implementation recommendations are also included in the plan.
The vision statement for the DPW and the Guam Transportation Plan is “to provide a safe, efficient and sustainable transportation system for our residents, visitors and military personnel that will support economic diversification, resource conservation and an exceptional quality of life.” The GTP identifies specific goals and objectives to support the vision based on existing transportation, land use and economic conditions.
The plan is designed to:
- Identify short and long-range transportation needs and develop improvement strategies
- Address the impacts of the on-going military build-up
- Establish sustainable funding and project implementation recommendation
