“DPW was able to purchase equipment to do some road repairs. With that equipment, a little out-of-the-box thinking and partnership with our private contractor, they were able to repair and improve Joseph A. Cruz Road to ensure buses and cars have a safe street with anti-skid asphalt.”
– Governor Eddie Baza Calvo
Spot repairs on Merizo road along Route 4 celebrated
Drivers will now have a smoother ride as they travel on Joseph A. Cruz Road in Merizo. A ceremony celebrating the completion of the village road improvement project was held today. The ceremony marked the completion of several improvements, including pavement markings, the installation of asphalt concrete for spot repair, and topping the road with anti-skid pavement to improve surface friction.
“The road would get really slippery when the rains came down so I’m grateful to DPW and to Governor Calvo for their efforts,” said Merizo Mayor Ernest Chargualaf. “I look forward to working with DPW on future road projects that will continue to improve the roads for Merizo residents and our guests.”
The project, which took nine days to complete, was funded by the Department of Interior IA grant and cost $130,200. DPW was able to make repairs to the roads, and Hawaiian Rock Products paved the road.
