Taleyfac Bridge project to help preserve historic site, improve safety for Southern drivers
March 28, 2012
Road improvements continue for southern residents today. The Department of Public Works broke ground on a project to restore the Taleyfac Bridge historic site and widen the adjacent roadway in Agat this morning.
Governor Eddie Baza Calvo thanked DPW for its leadership in bringing transportation infrastructure projects to fruition at the third groundbreaking ceremony in less than two weeks.
“There are so many good things going on in our community.  Yes, there are challenges, but there also is great leadership — people who are moving projects forward,” Governor Calvo said.  “From northern Guam to our beautiful southern villages, the administration is bringing progress to every corner of your island.  I’m privileged to work with the men and women of DPW whose hard work we are seeing nearly every week.”
The Taleyfac Bridge, also known as the old “Spanish Bridge” or “Tolai Taleyfac” in Agat, has sustained man made and natural disaster damage.  More than $800,000 made possible through the federal and historic preservation funds are being invested in the restoration project that also will include parking areas to accommodate tourists.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
