Work starts today on Route 4 in Yona, a mere six years after it was authorized. The entire two lane road just 50 meters from my house will be torn up and replaced with a modern 4 lane highway, with a center turn lane and sidewalks. I am pretty excited about this, the road has been among the worst on Guam for the last couple years. In just the last three months the road has really detiorated, with huge potholes opening up and long stretches were the top layer of pavement has washed off, exposing the road bed. While the traffic will suck on the road for probably the next year, I am looking forward to the construction work. Hopefully a number of people from Talofofo and Inarajan will divert to Cross Island road and lessen the traffic impact.
